BGS IC CAE Hosts Radicalization Workshop at Kentucky State University

On February 3rd, the BGS IC CAE hosted a workshop on Taking a Multidisciplinary Approach to Understanding Radicalization on the campus of consortium member Kentucky State University (KYSU).  The KYSU Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences facilitated the workshop, which was attended by over 70 individuals from KYSU, Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, and the University of Kentucky.  The purpose of the workshop was to provide attendees in-depth understanding on the history and process of radicalization.  The morning portion of the workshop featured presentations from KYSU faculty members on the history of revolutions, predicting insurgency, terrorist profiling, and how to construct an enemy.  During lunch, KYSU students conducted poster presentations on social identity, public cynicism, group marginalization, political polarization, and discrimination.  During the afternoon portion of the workshop, attendees utilized their newly learned knowledge to work in teams to create a propaganda campaign for a selected social movement.  Each team presented their campaign to the workshop audience.  Presentations and posters from the workshop are attached at the bottom on this below the images from the workshop.
