The symposium explores how different notions of jihad and political
violence have entered and been shaped by discursive formations in
academia, media, and the arts. It takes the aesthetic dimensions of
images and sounds that have emerged over the last 20 years in the
engagement with 9/11 and its aftermath as a starting point to rethink
the various notions of jihad and its relation to political violence.
Bringing together international scholars, artists, and curators, the
symposium critically examines the ways in which the concept of jihad has
been studied, covered, and resisted by different actors. It discusses
how notions of jihad are conditioned by and manifest in practices of
knowledge production by a wide range of social actors around the world.

We are looking forward to your participation!
