Fellow (1 September 2012 – 30 June 2013)
This research project will examine the emergence of terrorism in Europe and the United States in the 19th century. I will analyse the invention and reception of terror-ism as a specific form of political violence in the context of modernization processes, such as the emergence of social movements, the mass media and a mass public. The study is based on archival and published sources, 19th-century news¬papers, and the histori¬cal literature on the political, economic, and social his¬tory of Europe and the United States, as well as on relevant cases, protagonists and groups.
