This presentation will emphasize the analysis of Inspire magazine, an English language publication of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula as well as music in the context of terrorist recruitment and radicalization. The Information, Motivation, Behavioral Skills framework used to analyze Inspire is drawn from health and social psychology, and represents a novel and interdisciplinary example within the broader context of terrorism studies. Trained as a social and health psychologist, Dr. Lemieux is an Associate Professor of Communication and lead faculty researcher in the Transcultural Conflict and Violence (2CI) Initiative at GSU and Adjunct Associate Professor at both the Emory University School of Medicine and Rollins School of Public Health.

Lunch will be served.
