Shorter College Slates Seminar on Terrorism
Three scholars will join together to present a seminar on terrorism at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, in Shorter College’s Brookes Chapel. The event is sponsored by Shorter’s Department of History and Political Science and Eta Pi Sigma, the history and political science club. The public is invited to attend at no charge.
The program includes Dr. Randall Law, assistant professor of history at Birmingham Southern College, who will discuss “Lessons from the History of Terrorism”; Dr. Dwight Cassity, associate professor of political science at Shorter College, whose topic will be “Beginnings: The Cold War and the War on Terror”; and Dr. Stephen Shellman, assistant professor of international affairs at the University of Georgia, who will discuss “The Rational Terrorist: Systematic Explanations for Tactical Choices.”
“Since the events of Sept. 11, 2001, American society, U.S. policy and global politics have been dominated by questions of terrorism,” said Dr. James M. Scarry, assistant professor of history at Shorter College and coordinator of the event. “These questions are of particular importance to our students, our nation and our world. If we are ever to live in a world of peace, we must be willing to seek and discuss such answers.”
The March 4 seminar will include presentations by each scholar and will conclude with a question-and-answer period.
Additionally, he is a visiting fellow at the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Response to Terrorism, within the Center of Excellence of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Dr. Shellman is also the author of numerous articles related to this topic.
