Today at a Glance: Security & Terrorism and Macbeth

In the Terrorism and Security minor on Monday, two guest speakers shared their knowledge and experience. Andrew Ferguson, a former St Andrews M.Litt student in Terrorism Studies, primarily focused upon the role of social media within terrorist organisations. He now works on infrastructure protection projects and is based in Washington. Upile Mtitimila, a graduating St Andrews IR student who based his dissertation on the relationship between the media and terrorism spoke about racism and Islamophobia. The students then presented about language in the media describing terrorist attacks.

 

And in the Macbeth major, Oxbridge student Katrina Claflin presented on the theme of power in the play.
