International Conference on ‘Jihadi Audiovisualities: Meanings, Aesthetics, Appropriations’

Dear colleagues,

Remember to register for our International Conference on ‘Jihadi Audiovisualities: Meanings, Aesthetics, Appropriations’ on 4-5 October in Mainz.

We focus on audio-visual Jihadist offers, their figurations and aesthetics, and various forms of appropriation. Our event brings together scholars and practitioners from multiple disciplines to assess Jihadi audio-visuals and their surroundings in all their complexity. We will explore the acoustic dimension of Jihadi videos, focus on cinematic means and the creative power involved in Jihadi audio-visuals, and examine artivist modes of engaging with these communicative offers.
Please find a detailed programme and further information at http://jihadism-online.de/conference/en/programme/

Due to a great interest in the conference and limited seating capacity we kindly remind you to register now. Registration is open until 26 September.

Best regards,
Christoph
