40A Leon Street
Reception to follow
Northeastern University, our city, and the broader community have all been deeply affected by the Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath. To help audiences better comprehend these events, Northeastern faculty members have commented in national and international media, such as CNN, NPR, MSNBC, and The Wall Street Journal.
Please join a panel of faculty experts for a discussion of the issues that the bombing and the search for the perpetrators have raised. Ralph Martin, II will moderate a conversation with faculty panelists Aziza Ahmed, Stephen Flynn, David Lazer, Jack McDevitt, Daniel Medwed, and Gordana Rabrenovic, and an audience of students, faculty, and staff. Topics include the motivation for crime, the importance of resilience, the prosecution of domestic terror suspects, the dangers of misreading religious motivations, and the role of social media.
Together, we can deepen our understanding of these traumatic events and foster civic sustainability at Northeastern and beyond.
