SCII Focus Series: Dr. Amra Sabic-El-Rayess, “Reimagining Resilience to Hate: Storytelling as a Portal to Prevention”

September 22 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

In this lecture, Dr. Sabic-El-Rayess will introduce her novel model of radicalization, which emerged from empirical research with formerly radicalized persons. The key concept at the heart of this model is “Educational Displacement.” The lecture will involve a walk-through of various crucial steps on the pathway to radicalization outlined in this model. Coupled with this focus on theory, Dr. Sabic-El-Rayess will offer historical and socio-cultural context, as a survivor of genocide in Bosnia, from her highly acclaimed memoir: The Cat I Never Named. In addition, Dr. Sabic-El-Rayess may read out a selected passage from the book to focus on a specific moment and reflect on it with the audience.
