Tisch College Distinguished Speaker Series: Responding to Terrorism: Do we have to bomb ISIS?
Discussion and screening featuring Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick

Join us for a discussion and screening with Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick of their Showtime TV series and book: The Untold History of the United States. How much of our real history has been left out of our education and why? What Stone and Kuznick uncover challenges the United States' self-conception as an "exceptional" nation. Oliver Stone is a three-time Academy Award winning filmmaker and director of such notable films as Platoon, JFK, Wall Street and Midnight Express. American University Professor Peter Kuznick is the director of the Nuclear Studies Institute.

Co-sponsored by the Tisch College Distinguished Speakers Series, Dean's Office, Arts and Sciences, Toupin-Bolwell Fund, Sociology Department, Peace and Justice Studies, Political Science Department, International Relations Program, Center for Interdisciplinary Studies, Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora, Film Production Group, and History Department.
