Out of an abundance of caution in response to the spread of COVID-19, we have canceled all remaining seminars in the Winter/Spring 2020 term. Please visit www.newberry.org/covid19 for further updates.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
More than just a national police force, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is tasked with collecting secret intelligence and combatting extra–territorial threats like terrorism. In this seminar, we will cover the uses and abuses of power by the FBI in its attempts to capture terrorists, spies, criminals, and anyone deemed subversive. We will also discuss the often fraught position of intelligence agencies like the FBI in democracies.
Six sessions. E – $230, R – $253
