Call for Papers

'The Mediation of Security: an international conference'
 
Wednesday, 18 May 2011

VENUE: Hugh Aston Building, De Montfort University, Leicester

DEADLINE: Friday, 4 February 2011.
 
Organised by the Media Discourse Group
Department of Media, Film and Journalism
De Montfort University
Leicester

The Conference 'The Mediation of Security: an international conference' will be held at De Montfort University (Leicester) on Wednesday, 18 May 2011.
 
This international, one-day conference will examine the various ways in which security is described in the media, with particular reference to the stories promoted by news organisations when they attempt to support or undermine the various propositions made to the public about security and the 'terror threat'.

The conference will bring together a range of academic researchers from different disciplines. Although we are particularly interested in the mediation of terrorism and public security, contributions on this topic from other perspectives are also welcome and encouraged. These may include, but are not limited to, the following fields: media and communication, law, international relations, politics, human rights, psychology, cultural studies, sociology, philosophy, and information science.
 
Suggested topics for papers include (but are not limited to):
 
- Media representations of security
- Case studies of mediated events (national and international)
- The politics of terrorism - global and national perspectives
- The politics of security - global and national perspectives
- The 'cyber attack'
- Terrorism and new media
- Social media and terrorism
- Surveillance and subversion of democracy
- Legal aspects of public security
- Human rights and security
- Governance and security
- Legislative responses to terrorism and war
- Ethical issues
- Theories of terrorism
- Media strategies of insurgent groups
