A 4-night film series at Illinois State University asks the question, “Who is a terrorist, and why?” The series, "Terrorism on Screen," begins September 1 and will include the showing of five films over four nights. Dr. Erin Ponnou-Delaffon is an Assistant Professor of French at ISU and the organizer of the series. She said her interest in creating the series came from her personal and professional interest in contemporary France.
"I watch the news very closely and have friends over there" said Ponnou-Delaffon. "And certainly France is a country that has been rocked by terrorist events as of late, and is still struggling to come to terms with what that means for them. Particularly in the light of next year's Presidential election."
