Stockholm Syndrome in Academics

Gordon, A. (2005) Terrorism as an academic subject after 9/11: Searching the internet reveals a Stockholm Syndrome trend. Studies in Conflict & Terrorism, 28(1), 45-59. Retrieved October 3, 2009, from the PsycINFO database.

One of my students reported on this article for her annotation. From her annotation, “The general view of the context of this reaction creates the impression that the terrorists succeeded in creating the kind of behavior characterized as the Stockholm Syndrome.”

I haven’t read the study yet, but I find it fascinating.

What does it have to do with teaching English? I guess it is something interesting learned during WAC/WID classes.
