“Disciplining Terror: Experts, Rational Knowledge, and Irrational Subjects.” Lisa Stampnitzky, Ph.D.- Fellow at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University This talk draws upon Lisa’s forthcoming book, Disciplining Terror: How Experts and Others Invented Terrorism. Stampnitzky will argue that the concept of “terrorism” and the field of terrorism expertise first manifested in the 1970s, and that the way in which these areas took shape has significantly constrained the possibilities for both counterterrorism policy and counterterrorism expertise.
