The Public and International Affairs (PIA) Department holds “Making Sense of Sept. 11: Terrorism, Democracy, and the Contested Meaning of Liberty,” a panel discussion on Wednesday, Sept. 19, from noon to 1:15 p.m. in Harris Theater.

Chip Hauss, a faculty member in the Honors Program in General Education who works with Search for Common Ground (an international conflict resolution and conflict prevention organization), will moderate the discussion. Speakers will address the audience for approximately five minutes each, followed by short responses from several discussants. Speakers and responders tentatively scheduled include PIA faculty members Peter Mandaville on “Muslims in the international community,” Jon Gould on “civil liberties and issues of hate speech,” Fran Harbour on “national security and international ethics,” and Jim Barry on “the intelligence community.”

More details will be provided as the schedule becomes finalized. Everyone is welcome to attend.
