About the event
Terrorism now has a constant presence in our movies, shows, news, and indeed our consciousness. But what isterrorism actually? Is it just an epithet (one scholar has snidely observed that “terrorism is what the bad guys do”)? Let a specialist on the subject take you on an enlightening and entertaining journey through the centuries-long history of terrorism, and learn how to make sense of the role it plays in the world today.
Dr. Randy Law is Professor of History at Birmingham-Southern College. He is an internationally-recognized expert on the global history of terrorism and the author ofTerrorism: A History (2nd ed., Polity, 2016).
