[New publication] Towards a critical understanding and investigation of political violence – one adjunct’s humble contributions to the study of terrorism


Throughout my short teaching career, I have met some amazing students.  Truly amazing.  While of course I’ve had those that needed to be incentivized into completing assignments, and others who just seemed to be going through the motions, the vast majority have been exemplary scholars.  After I completed by fourth terrorism class at Georgetown, I decided that some of these great student voices needed to be preserved, amplified and shared.

So I got out the old stacks of papers, my ‘notes to self’, and invited a few dozen students to offer up their best political violence-related paper for blind review.  The result, after a year of hard work, we have an issue of the journal Critical Studies on Terrorism which features these student voices.

Of course, with any great issue is an over-wordy introduction, which you can read on the links below.



I’ll be posting the entire issue when it’s made available, but for now, the introduction should foreground the relevant issues.
