Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States at his inauguration later today (20 January).
But what will the Biden Administration mean for the United States and the rest of the world? What will be its priorities, and what challenges will it face?
Experts from the Rothermere American Institute will try to unpick these crucial questions at a special online event next week.
'The Future of American Politics' will be held on Zoom from 5pm on Thursday 28 January.
The speakers will be:
Desmond King (chair), the Andrew Mellon Professor of Government at the University of Oxford. Professor King King specialises in the study of the American state in US executive politics, race and politics in American political development, and the financial bases of US politics.
Robert Lieberman, the current John G. Winant Visiting Professor of American Government at the University of Oxford. He is the Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Political Science at The Johns Hopkins University.
