A Critical History of Terrorism
【Please note that you are assessed on a Pass/Fail basis in this course.】
This class examines the rise of terrorism following the French Revolution to the present day. Different definitions of terrorism in political discourse and international law will be discussed. Several case studies will be highlighted, including the French Revolution, 19th Century Irish and Russian revolutionary movements, the Franco-Algerian War, Apartheid in South Africa, Civil War in Sri Lanka, The Troubles in Northern Ireland, and the rise of Al Qaeda and ISIL. We will study political violence using anthropology, psychology, political science, and history. In addition to understanding the causes and motivations for state and non-state-sponsored terrorism, we will investigate responses: including examples of transitional justice mechanisms (South Africa and Northern Ireland) and armed intervention (Iraq and Afghanistan). This course will give students a better understanding of the role of terrorism in shaping modern politics worldwide. Students will also learn about justice and peacebuilding mechanisms for building fair societies.
