I am pleased to start a new spring/summer programme of events for The Exchange at the Athenaeum.
The first event for 2023 is with Dr James Crossland from Liverpool John Moores University. Dr Crossland is a Reader in International History whose present research interests lie in the history of terrorism, societal fear, intelligence and propaganda.
I’ll be talking to him about his latest book The Rise of Devils: Fear and the Origins of Modern Terrorism, in which he explains where our understandings of what constitutes a terrorist comes from and why the role played by the media in shaping these understandings is as important today as it was over a century ago, when the first wave of terrorist attacks sent a wave of fear across Europe (including Liverpool) and the United States.
