Course Description: This course examines the various dimensions of terrorism and its manifestations, including the nation-state's capacity to authorize and create the conditions for the practice known as terrorism. Students analyze the role of the nation-state and the rhetoric(s) of anti-terrorism that both produce and contain terrorism. The course explores the psychology of both the nation-state and the terrorist through a psychoanalytic approach to identifications with ideology, and applies political theory to understand the role of political, legal, and military structures in producing the terrorist. To this end, students examine the function of different terrorist acts - including suicide bombing in Iraq, Israel/Palestine, London and New York, assassinations and bombings in Northern Ireland and England - and practices of state terror in the context of acts of genocide, disappearance, and torture. This analysis provides the framework for thinking about a new way of conceptualizing violence performed by the state, the individual, and the group.
