Speaker: Dr Caron E Gentry, Senior Lecturer in the School of International Relations, University of St Andrews

Abstract: In this talk, Caron Gentry will provide a preview of her forthcoming book, Disordered Violence: How Gender, Race, and Heteronormativity Structure Terrorism.  She will introduce the key argument, that Terrorism Studies is dependent upon particular structures to write terrorism as immoral, illegitimate, and irrational.  She will focus on the need to recognise misogynistic terrorism, a form of terrorism that encompasses violence against women and feminized peoples such as personal violence as well as mass shootings.
