Author-Meets-Critics Session: Vicente Medina’s “Terrorism Unjustified”

The Felician Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs will be holding an Author-Meets-Critics session on Vicente Medina’s Terrorism Unjustified: The Use and Misuse of Political Violence (Rowman and Littlefield, 2015). The event takes place on Saturday, April 21, 2018, 1-4:30 pm, in the Main Auditorium (“Ray’s Place”) of the Education Commons Building on Felician University’s Rutherford campus (231 Montross Ave., Rutherford, New Jersey 07070). Light refreshments will be served.

Presenters include Theresa Fanelli (Criminal Justice, Felician; previously, FBI Counterterrorism Division), Graham Parsons (Philosophy, West Point), and Irfan Khawaja (Philosophy, Felician), with a response by Vicente Medina (Philosophy, Seton Hall University).

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available onsite, and the Rutherford campus is easily accessible by mass transit from New York City (New Jersey Transit Bus #190 from Port Authority, at 42nd St).

The event is co-sponsored by the Royal Academy of Science International Trust, the Felician University Pre-Law Program, and the Felician University UN Fellows Program. For further information, contact me at khawajai at felician dot edu.

Medina’s book came up here at PoT almost exactly a year ago, when David Riesbeck blogged a review of the book from Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews. I’ll see if I can hunt down some more reviews. I’m hoping to road-test parts of my own April 21 presentation here at PoT before I present it at the event. We’re eventually hoping to publish at least part of the symposium in Reason Papers, most likely minus Fanelli’s presentation, which would require permission from the FBI (her former employer), and would likely delay publication by years.
