Translating Terror: Globalisation and the new Planetary Wars
Uncertainty, insecurity and conflict are constitutive features of globalisation. 9/11 has been viewed as the symbolic unleashing of a new Age of Terror, in which traditional conceptions of national security are shattered and a new kind of global vulnerability emerges. This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the relationship between globalisation and political violence, to analyse the way that terror has been represented through the global media and to highlight the importance of translation in shaping current discourses on terror. Panels are organised around two main topics: globalisation and political violence, and language and translation in media discourses on terror.
