Ableson Religious Reconciliation Lecture Stream

Welcome to a LiveStream of the inaugural Ableson Religious Reconciliation Lecture featuring keynote speaker Dr. Scott Atran. Dr. Atran has traveled the world interviewing and, in some cases, living among known terrorists in order to better understand the motivations of those who kill in the name of God. He published his findings in a book titled, Talking to the Enemy: Faith, Brotherhood, and the (Un)Making of Terrorists (2010). Atran has taught at Cambridge University, Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the École des Hautes Études in Paris. He is a research director in anthropology at the French National Centre for Scientific Research and a visiting professor in psychology and public policy at the University of Michigan.
