Collaborating Across Disciplines to Understand Terrorism and Violence
The big question that Anthony Lemieux, PhD, seeks to answer is what factors mobilize people toward violent action. Primarily, Dr. Lemieux focuses on terrorism, a particularly challenging and important area. Dr. Lemieux will highlight two programs of research that are interdisciplinary and collaborative. He will touch on how he got into these areas of study by providing some background and personal detail. This will lead into a consideration of how we can effectively conceptualize approaches to ensure that key voices and perspectives are included.
Anthony Lemieux is the Director of the Global Studies Institute, and Professor of Global Studies and Communication at Georgia State University, where he is also a lead researcher in an interdisciplinary second-century initiative on Trans-Cultural Conflict and Violence. He has extensively studied motivations for terrorism and violent extremism. Dr. Lemieux is also Adjunct Associate Professor in the Rollins School of Public Health, and the Department of Pediatrics in the Emory University School of Medicine.
This event is free and open to the public.
