Should the Daleks Be Exterminated?

Screen Shot 2013-09-08 at 12.32.18 PM

In the latest edition of Life Elsewhere we talk with Edward Webb
Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Studies at Dickinson College. He contributes to Middle East Studies and Security Studies. He has particular interests in the interaction of religions and politics and the politics of education, as well as authoritarianism and empire. His interest in pedagogical applications of new technologies, including simulations, games, and social media, has led to him being appointed to the Advisory Board of the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education. A former diplomat, he has lived and worked in the Middle East and Europe. Recent publications: Professor Webb contributed a chapter on “Totalitarianism and Authoritarianism” to 21st Century Political Science: A Reference Handbook, edited by Ishiyama & Breuning (2011) and a chapter, “Should the Daleks Be Exterminated?” (with Mark Wardecker) to “Doctor Who and Philosophy”. We pose that question to Ed Webb. Listen to the full program here
