INTL 382 - Terrorism


1 unit(s)
No other issue generates as much discussion and controversy as the contemporary debate over ‘terrorism.’ But what is this phenomenon? And how should we respond to it? This course examines ‘terrorism’ with a critical eye, looking at the different ways that the subject is framed by various disciplines and authors. Drawing on political science, anthropological and historical accounts, as well as arguments made by scholars from economics, Women’s studies and area studies, we discuss the ways in which terrorism has been presented, debated and analyzed. We also draw from the fictional universe through an examination of films and novels that depict the inner struggles of ‘terrorists’ and those affected by their actions. Zachariah Mampilly.

Not offered in 2016/17.
