Thursday, February 18, 2016. 04:30 PM - 06:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Piggot Hall, Building 260, Room 216
Meeting Description: 
Terrence Peterson is a Postdoctoral Fellow at CISAC for 2015-2016, where he is working on the development of French and international counterinsurgency theories during the period of decolonization. His dissertation, entitled “Counterinsurgent Bodies: Social Welfare and Psychological Warfare in French Algeria, 1956-1962,” examines the French Army’s efforts to counter a nationalist revolution by combining population development projects and mass psychology techniques to ‘modernize’ Algerian Muslims and remake them in the image of Frenchmen. His current research focuses on the intersections between the Cold War, decolonization conflicts, and the development of counterinsurgency doctrines.
