    What if we stopped thinking about terrorism as a virus, as an imported threat designed to destroy our liberties and our way of life? What if it was a much more familiar disease? A cancer Western civilization has been feeding long before Islam became "radical"? This conference will offer a writer's perspective on the recent attacks in France and the US. It will also explore a number of preventive strategies that have not received as much public attention as the traditional defense and law enforcement responses to terrorism. 

    Julien Suaudeau teaches at Bryn Mawr College, where he is the Coordinator of the Non-Intensive Language sequence in French.

    He is the author of three novels : Dawa (2014), Le Français (2015) and Ni le feu ni la foudre (2016). His fiction work focuses on contemporary France seen through the lenses of colonial and postcolonial history, immigration, laïcité, terrorism, and socioeconomic inequalities. He is a regular contributor to the opinion pages of French dailies Le Monde, Le Figaro, Libération and weekly magazine L'Obs. In the US, he lectures frequently as a guest speaker. He was the keynote speaker at the American Association of teachers of French (AATF) 2016 National Convention. As a filmmaker, he has directed documentaries and short fiction films, and has published extensively on film history, film theory and French cinema in Positif

    Mr. Suaudeau studied at SciencesPo (Institut d'Etudes Politiques) and La Sorbonne (Université Paris IV). He has taught French both at the high school and the college level. 

    A reception will follow.
