How do terror and migration intersect in literary and cultural studies? This session seeks papers that explore ways in which migration is shaped or defined by the experiences or rhetoric of terror. How are discourses of terrorism and immigration linked? How do experiences of terror affect processes of immigration, asylum, and exile? How are our understandings of diaspora and globalization shaped by the language or institutions of security? All geographical, temporal, and generic foci welcome.
