This series examines and critiques a range of human and technological communication issues as they relate to and shape current understandings about terrorism and national security. It explores the concepts of “terrorism” and “national security” within cultural, historical and communication contexts, with an emphasis on the rise of non-state sponsored terrorism that led up to and continues to occur since September 11.
This series was recorded at Arizona State University in 2005 as part of the Hugh Downs School of Human Communications' open lecture series on Communication, Terrorism and National Security.
