April 20, 2015
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Philip Travis, Ph.D., visiting history instructor, is the guest presenter for the next colloquium at EOU Thursday, April 30.
His discussion of “The Terrorism Label: Propaganda and the U.S.-Contra War,” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception follows and the event will be streamed live at https://new.livestream.com/eou/events/3747597.
Travis will look back to the 1980s and the United States’ conflict with the Sandinista-led Nicaraguan government. His research demonstrates the use of terrorism as a label by examining the Reagan administration’s attempt to use a global terrorism crisis to overcome the Vietnam Syndrome and shift prevailing attitudes over its conflict with Nicaragua.
Travis is currently working on a book that emphasizes the Reagan administration’s conflict with Nicaragua through the lens of counterterrorism and propaganda.
