Global Perspectives on the November 13 Terrorist Attacks in Paris

Our Department Co-sponsored an open discussion on global terror networks, imperialism, states of exception and increased militarization with a selected group of experts and a lively participation from the public.

Speakers: Cory Browning (RL), Angela Joya (IS), Matthias Mathijs (IS, Johns Hopkins), Fabienne Moore (RL), Sebastián Urioste (RL), Anita Weiss (International Studies).

Here is what some Romance Languages students had to say about the event:

“The panel discussion of the terrorist attacks in Paris was a well-planned and a thoughtful event. The professors […] that were giving their lectures brought up some well thought-out insights that I did not know or even realize were being taken into factor when discussing the terror attacks in Paris.”
Moriah Frazier

“I found the discussion to be a great learning experience and I hope I can attend more events like this in the future.”
Abby Hauth

“It was refreshing to be able to get the perspectives of people who weren’t the media and weren’t overly biased in their comments.”
Meaghan Donovan

“After hearing everything people had to say in this seminar I believe our best weapon against incidents like this is education. […] People need to be able to see the humanity of the situation in the world and examine it so that they can come to an educated conclusion.”
Hank Manilla

And Romance Languages Professor Leah Middlebrook wrote:

“The discussion was powerful and moving, and the audience engagement and response demonstrates how much we need these types of events right now […] The thoughtful conversation that took place in the second half of the program did much to counteract the sense of helplessness and frustration that has been building over the past months.”

Sponsored by the Program in European Studies, the Department of Romance Languages, the Department of International Studies, and UO International AffairsParis
