Instructional Method: Online. Transnational Dimensions of Political Violence (3) With the rise of ISIS in the Middle East and elsewhere, the term "foreign fighter" has entered mainstream discussions of terrorism and political violence in the twenty-first century. This course investigates the role that foreign fighters played in the Syria Civil War, as well as in a number of other conflicts such as Chechnya, Kashmir, Somalia, and Nigeria, from an empirical perspective. Students learn about the role of transnational advocacy networks, funding sources, and international laws and policies that contribute to foreign fighter participation in civil conflicts. Students use social movement concepts such as resource mobilization theory, network analysis, ideological framing, and rational choice theory to assess and analyze a transnational conflict or actor of their choosing. Meets with JLC-685 001.

Kearns,E 
 
 
 
Instructional Method: Online. Experimenting in Terrorism (3) Why do people decide to engage in terrorism? How do we know what works to prevent terrorism? While observational studies and large-N research provide insights into these questions, the experimental method allows scholars to pinpoint causal mechanisms of engagement in terrorism and preventing violence. This course focuses specifically on experimental research in terrorism and counterterrorism. The course addresses a range of issues including: the benefits of experimental research over other methods; assessing risks of terrorism; getting involved in terrorism; media's impact on perceptions of terrorism; labeling violence as terrorism or not; and factors that impact counterterrorism preferences.

Wrongful Convictions

Lowrey,B 
 
 
 
Instructional Method: Online. Wrongful Convictions (3) Wrongful convictions have important implications for our justice system and can forever change the lives of innocent people. The recent production of the immensely popular podcast Serial and the documentary Making a Murderer have drawn the public's attention to the possibility that innocent individuals may be arrested, convicted, and incarnated. In this course students learn about factors which are associated with wrongful convictions including eyewitness misidentification, false confessions, forensic error, jailhouse snitches, and prosecutorial misconduct. The course also addresses the consequences of wrongful convictions on the lives of the exonerated and discusses potential solutions to these issues. Meets with JLC-696 002.

Lowrey,B 
 
 
 
Instructional Method: Online. The Language of Crime (3) From police interrogations to ransom letters and courtroom arguments, language is closely tied to all aspects of the criminal justice system. The field of forensic linguistics explores the intersection of language and the law, in particular how language evidence can guide police investigations and contribute to determining the guilt or innocence of suspects. This course explores the many fascinating applications of linguistics to criminal justice, including the analysis of confession statements, suicide notes, courtroom discourse, and identifying unknown speakers based on their language.
