"The Phenomenon of ISIS Through the Lens of Cognitive Science: A Panel Discussion"
Abstract: The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) declared itself to be a worldwide Caliphate in 2014. Through brutal violence and a savvy media campaign, ISIS has been able to grab worldwide reaction. Perceptions about ISIS - some real and some imaginary - are now playing a crucial role in US domestic and foreign policy. But beyond politics, how do we understand the phenomenon of ISIS in the broader contexts of international terrorism and global conflict? Why do some individuals in different countries desire to join ISIS? What is the role of media in the creation of both the ISIS spectacle and some of its anti-Muslim backlash? Can the field of cognitive science offer some insights? Join us at this informal panel discussion on questions about ISIS that are relevant to cognitive science.
