To study this urgent issue within an educational context, we partnered with Nova Southeastern University and held a symposium at Concordia University in Montreal Canada on March 23-24, 2015. The symposium delegates consisted of a team of international experts from several countries—the US, the UK, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia, including one leading educational research and practice institution in Europe. All delegates shared their research and led discussions on how to enhance the capacity of educators to address post 9/11 policy, pedagogy, and curriculum in comparative and trans-disciplinary contexts.
- Each of the delegates who presented at the symposium, Teaching about Extremism, Terror and Trauma: 9/11— Policy, Pedagogy and Curriculum submitted their papers and we are now in the editing stage. These papers will be published as conference proceedings in 2016.
- The symposium was highly successful and therefore plans are currently underway to hold a second symposium on Teaching about Terror and Trauma in April 2016 at Concordia University in Montreal.
