Panel to address psychology of fear, civil rights of detainees and international political relations

A special program, "Reflections on Sept. 11 Two Years Later," examines the reverberating effects of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Part of an ongoing class, "The United States and the World in the 21st Century," the program is open to the public as a lecture series. It is designed to help students and the public better understand the U.S.'s policies and use of military intervention in the increasingly complex and volatile environment post-Sept. 11 and post-Iraq war.

Ann Ginger will describe her recent research on the violation of civil rights among detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Ginger, a lecturer in the Global Peace Studies Program, teaches courses on peace law, human rights and global peace.

Ken Miller will discuss the "culture of fear" promoted by the Bush administration and demonstrate its failure from a social-psychological perspective. Miller, associate professor of psychology, has done extensive research on post-traumatic stress syndrome and the mental health of refugee populations.

Sanjoy Banerjee, professor of international relations, studies the rise of the Taliban and political issues in Afghanistan and Iraq. He will provide an analysis of the Iraq war's impact on international relations and coalition-building.

Thursday, Sept. 11, 2003, 7 - 9 p.m.

Humanities Auditorium (Room 133, Humanities Bldg.), San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Ave. at 19th Avenue, San Francisco.
