Friday Forum: The Challenges of Researching Violence and Terror
November 8, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
of Researching Violence and Terror:
Faculty Conversation with Graduate Students
This week’s Friday Forum event is a conversation between graduate students and UW-Madison faculty members who have conducted difficult, sometimes dangerous, research that often has entailed close examination of deeply troubling topics. Scholars across many fields encounter similar challenges, but the skills required to overcome them are often difficult to learn without hearing from veteran researchers who have succeeded in such work.
Join students from the Southeast Asia Research Group (SEARG) on November 8 as we meet with three of these veteran researchers: UW-Madison professors Thierry Cruvellier, Tyrell Haberkorn, and Alfred McCoy. Through a 90-minute roundtable discussion, we will draw on their personal experiences to drive a practical review of some key aspects of this kind of work. Panelists will each make brief presentations about their research and then we will open the floor to questions from graduate students. Participating students are highly encouraged to come ready with a question or two for the panelists. Priority during the Q&A will be given to students who RSVP for the event. Non-students interested in this conversation are welcome to attend.
To RSVP, graduate students should send an email by the end of the day on Monday to Johnny Bassett at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
