THE AGE OF TERRORISM
A Globis Forum

Presented by the Center for the Study of Global Issues
Monday, March 23rd
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Miller Learning Center 213
University of Georgia

Are we living in a new “Age of Terrorism?” The concept of "terrorism" dominates popular media, political discourse, and grows increasingly important in the academic study of security policy.  Despite the prevalence of terrorism in the modern world, there is no real consensus regarding the definition, causes, or consequences of terrorism in the 21st Century.

On March 23rd from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm, The University of Georgia's Center for the Study of Global Issues (Globis) will present "The Age of Terrorism," a forum in which experts from the University System of Georgia and Georgia State University will seek to define modern terror across a number of essential dimensions. The forum will take place on the University of Georgia campus in room 213 of the Miller Learning Center.

Panel members will include:

Dr. Anthony Lemieux, Associate Professor of Communication at Georgia State University, and investigator with the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Response to Terrorism (START).

Dr. William Keller, Professor of International Affairs and Director of the Center for International Trade & Security, whose research and writing focuses on internal security, terrorism, and the proliferation of WMDs.

Dr. K. Chad Clay, Assistant Professor of International Affairs, whose expertise covers political violence and various forms of organized dissent.

Dr. Roger Stahl, Associate Professor in UGA's Department of Communication Studies, an expert in political media and the cultural rhetoric of war.

Globis forums are intended to be practical, participatory, and oriented toward actionable conclusions.  We encourage both students and members of the community to attend. Discussion and questions from the audience are welcomed and encouraged.

We hope you will join us on March 23rd at 5:30 pm in MLC 213.
