Fathom Launches 9-11 Learning Center
Fathom has launched "September 11: Before and After," a comprehensive learning center at its Web site, www.fathom.com. The center combines online lectures, seminars, papers and discussions to enable users to examine the roots of terrorism; the history of religious extremism and political violence; and the political and historical significance of the response of the U.S. government and the international community.
The center taps into the intellectual resources of leading scholars at Fathom's 13 renowned member institutions. Users can review a discussion on bioterrorism from Bruce Hoffman, terrorism expert and director of the Washington, D.C., office of RAND; or review the media's use of language as presented by Eric Foner, eminent historian at Columbia University. Lisa Anderson, dean of Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs and Dr. Katerina Dalacoura of the Centre for the Study of Human Rights at the London School of Economics and Political Science will provide general editorial oversight for the center. Fathom, New York, NY, (877) 731-6941, www.fathom.com.
