Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics
7th Annual Conference
Representation, Politics and Violence
The years since “9/11” have seen conflicts arising across the world: repeated protests and riots against austerity; violent conflicts during the various uprisings against dictatorial rule in the Middle East and in other parts of the world; the continuing so-called “war on terror” and the various forms of violence associated with it. For most people access to these conflicts is mediated by television, by newspapers and by the internet. The politics of how these conflicts are presented, and re-presented, sets the frames of reference within which we can respond to them. This conference explores the politics of this representation in a variety of forms.
We anticipate that these and related issues will be of interest to people working in, among other areas, art, cultural studies, philosophy, political theory, politics, sociology, media studies and history.
