Please join the Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy for a lecture from Silke Zoller, Assistant Professor of History at Kennesaw State University, titled "To Deter and Punish: Preventing International Terrorism in the 1970s."

The early 1970s were an era of hijackings and terrorist attacks around the world. In her talk, Dr. Zoller will examine how bureaucrats in the United States, Canada, Western Europe, and Japan began to collaborate in response, hoping to deter new attacks and motivate other states to punish attackers. They passed several multilateral agreements; these substantially shaped how the industrialized Global North would conceptualize the threat of “international terrorism” in the decades to come.

The talk will be held in-person and online over Zoom. In-person attendees can join us on October 26, 2022 at 4:30 PM in the Weigley Room, 914 Gladfelter Hall, Temple University, Philadelphia.
