Primary Instructor:

The Global War on Terrorism has dominated headlines for most of your lives. But have you ever asked what, exactly, terrorism is? This class looks at that question in historical perspective. Terrorism did not begin on September 11, 2001, but, in fact, has a long history stretching across the globe. The term has been used to define revolutionary action against tyrannical regimes, guerilla warfare in pursuit of national liberation, labor activism, apocalyptic religious movements, and many other acts of political, religious, and national expression. How can we make sense of this variety? How should the term be applied usefully and responsibly?
