Primary Instructor:

In the twenty-first century, practices of violence in general, and terrorism and torture in particular occupy most media attention. Why have these phenomena risen to the forefront of public discussion and what can we as a society do about them? This course approaches the three contemporary phenomena of terrorism, torture and violence sociologically. It grounds each phenomenon in particular events, analyzing the emergence of the Islamic State for terrorism; the US Senate Torture Report for torture; and sexual assault in the US for violence

Course Requirements:

There will be three short examinations (each worth 30% of the total grade) at the end of the discussion of each phenomenon. Participation in class discussion will determine the remaining 10% of the course grade.
