Teaching 9/11

Sat 30 2008

On Thursday, September 11, 2008, the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI) will sponsor two webcasts on what students should know about 9/11.

Schools may sign up to view either or both webcasts live online and participate in the question-and-answer periods.

The first session between 11:00 and 11:45 am features an interview with Lawrence Husick, FPRI Senior Fellow specializing in the study of terrorist tactics and counterterrorism strategies, with a particular focus on the use of technology in terrorism.

The second session between 2:00 and 2:45 pm features an interview with Adam Garfinkle, editor of The American Interest magazine. He served as speechwriter to the Secretary of State from 2003 to 2005.

Past webcasts and links to readings appear with the webcast announcement.
