Europe and Terrorism
MALAS 600/EUROP 501
Professor Veronica Shapovalov
In this course we shall explore the complex historical, cultural, and moral dimensions of terrorism—one of the central political and moral issues of the 21st century.
What can the artists’ insights in terrorism teach us about the reality of terrorists’ attacks? How does the imaginable become reality? How do artists approach the theme of “the unspeakable”?
Using a variety of literary, historic, and media sources we shall explore extremist ideologies, the morality of political violence in general and terrorists’ violence in particular.
