The U.S. Response To Terrorism

The events on September 11, 2001 were a turning point for the United States. Lives were drastically changed. A war began. Security became the central focus of the Bush Administration.

It was not only a tragic moment of immense loss for individual victims and for the country, but it ushered in a transformation of our culture and in the way we understood security, surveillance, nationalism, privacy, and immigration. Ultimately, the “war on terror” has shaped years of both foreign and domestic policy.

Here are lectures, spanning more than a decade, from political thinkers and researchers. They explore and challenge how we understand terrorism – both domestically and internationally – and parse through the reverberations of September 11th.
