RE-VISIONING TERRORISM

An Interdisciplinary and International Conference

SEPTEMBER 8-10, 2011 – Purdue University

 

Funded by the College of Liberal Arts Enhancing Research in the Humanities and the Arts Grant and by the Purdue University Office of the Vice President for Research

 

Papers and/ or panel proposals are invited for a three-day conference on re-visions and re-presentations of terrorism from antiquity to the present, to coincide, roughly, with the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack directed at the World Trade Center in New York on September, 2001. Proposals for panels and individual papers (250-word abstract) are due by March 20, 2011.

 

Refereed proceedings will be published.

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to look at terrorism to see how it has been perceived and represented over the centuries in literature, art, theater, and most recently, in the audio-visual media in the hope of arriving at a better understanding of this phenomenon. We invite paper from scholars across the humanities and social sciences. While we do not expect to find a unitary definition of and/or explanation for terrorism, we hope to encourage a more flexible response to one of the most serious problems confronting the world today.
