EVENT POSTPONED

Unfortunately, due to ongoing safety concerns related to the COVID-19 (coronavirus), this event has been postponed to the fall 2020 semester.

The safety of students, staff and faculty is always our first priority. This, combined with new travel restrictions for professors has resulted in cancelling this event. Please stay tuned for updates on this page and through communication from Pi Sigma Alpha and the University Forum at Southern Miss for a new date announced later in the year.


Event Overview

Students at the University of Southern Mississippi are invited to a campus lecture on the “Economics of Terrorism” featuring TFAS Academic Director Dr. Anne Bradley.

on Thursday, March 12.
Dr. Anne Bradley is the George and Sally Mayer Fellow for Economic Education and the academic director at TFAS.

Dr. Bradley’s remarks will examine al-Qaeda as a case study in modern terrorism from a rational choice, comparative institutional perspective. Seeing terrorist activity through this lens allows us to capture both the demand and supply sides of its “market,” a perspective that can illuminate dimensions of international terrorism that often escape more conventional analyses, and offer some novel and promising counterstrategies.

A leading scholar in international economics, Dr. Bradley is the Academic Director and George and Sally Mayer Fellow for Economic Education at TFAS. In this role, she delivers lectures around the country, oversees curriculum development and evaluation for economics courses and works to enhance the impact and reach of TFAS economic education programs.

This event is co-hosted by TFAS, Pi Sigma Alpha and the University Forum at Southern Miss.

Please join us for this insightful discussion. We look forward to seeing you there.
