Social and Political Sciences Seminar Series
Over the past 100 years tear gases have been deployed to lure soldiers from hiding, disperse protesters and quell prisoners. Looking at key moments in the history of tear gases, Anna Feigenbaum provides a behind the scenes look at the people and policies that came to make these chemical agents the most popular tool for law enforcement worldwide.
There will be an opportunity for questions after the lecture.
