Professors Jeff Knopf and Sharad Joshi of the MANPTS program are presenting papers at the ISSS/ISAC annual meeting in Washington, DC, Oct. 4-6, 2013. This event is a joint meeting of the International Security Studies Section of the International Studies Association and the International Security and Arms Control section of the American Political Science Association.
The next Terrorism Studies Club meeting will be held on Monday 30-September @ 1200 in room B104. Pizza and soft drinks will be provided, and our guest speaker will be cyber security expert and the director of the Monterey Cyber Security Initiative (MCySec), Dr. Itamara Lochard.
Additionally, continuing MonTREP employees and TSC members need to send me a quick response (email@example.com) so that we know you have received the updated meeting information. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and I will see you Monday!
I hope you all had a restful, yet productive summer. On behalf of the Monterey Terrorism Research & Education Program (MonTREP) and the Terrorism Studies Club (TSC), I would like to welcome all incoming MANPTS students, as well as welcome back all of the returning MANPTS students. I have a couple of quick announcements for prospective/continuing employees of MonTREP and those that are involved in the TSC or would like to join:
- The first Terrorism Studies Club meeting will be held at 1200 on Monday, August 26 in Morse B206.
- All continuing and prospective MonTREP employees are required to attend this meeting as General Howard will be making important announcements.
- If you are interested in joining the Terrorism Studies Club or attending future MonTREP events, please send me a quick email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I can add you to my mailing list. Current members of the TSC and employees of MonTREP are asked to respond as well.
Again, I hope everyone had a great summer, and I look forward to seeing you on Monday!
