The University of Oklahoma announces the fifth annual Summer Workshop on Teaching about Terrorism (SWOTT). The workshop will be held July 9-16, 2009 at the University of Oklahoma. Professors and advanced graduate students from all disciplines are eligible to apply.
Applications can now be submitted online at through Friday, April 3, 2009.
SWOTT was developed to: 1) offer an intensive short-course on understanding the fundamentals of terrorism; 2) introduce professors and graduate students to new and innovative techniques utilized to conduct research and teach about terrorism; and 3) strengthen the community of terrorism scholars. The workshop seeks to not only acquaint participants with the current issues that dominate US foreign policy and much of the world's attention (e.g. weapons of mass destruction, suicide terrorism, and state sponsorship of terrorism), but also promises a greater appreciation of the classic literature in the field.
More details about the workshop as well as an FAQ are available on the SWOTT website or you may contact the workshop staff at if you have any questions.
