Shana Gadarian receives grant  

Gadarian,-ShanaShana Gadarian, assistant professor of political science, has received funding from the Norway Research Council for a long-term study of the effect of terrorism on social capital in several countries.  Collaborating with a group of researchers from Norway, Finland, and Spain, she will act as the U.S. arm of the project for 2015-2017, working on survey design and implementation.

The project will examine the relationship between a major disruption such as a terrorist attack and the resilience of social networks in the aftermath.  Specifically, the group will study changes in Norway resulting from the terrorist attack there in July 2011 in which over 80 people were killed and will compare the effects of that event with those in other countries that have experienced terrorist attacks. 07/01/14
