An Interdisciplinary and International Conference
SEPTEMBER 8-10, 2011 – Purdue University
We invite papers and/or panel proposals from scholars across the humanities and the social sciences 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.
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. 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.
