Fundamentalism and terrorism, 15 credits 15 cr

About the Course

What is the connection between fundamentalism, terrorism and ideas about martyrs in different religions? And how may fundamentalism and terrorism be understood in relation to western colonialism and orientalism? Are concepts such as fundamentalism and terrorism at all useful in research contexts?
The course covers different aspects of the modern research in these issues, and also includes a critical review of mass media's image of fundamentalism and terrorism. The starting point of the course is current research in several modern phenomena connected to extremism, terrorism and fundamentalism.
