Thursday 31/1  	13:00  	
Session 2: Embedding Fear: The Internet And The Spectacle Of
Heightened Alert  {AT}  Conference
Moderator: Brian Holmes [us]
Participants: Loretta Napoleoni [us], Naeem Mohaiemen [bd], Yassin
Musharbash [de]
Respondent: Thorsten Schilling [de]

The Internet's 'open system' makes it not only the world's most
powerful tool of conspiratorial narrative generation but also creates
the broadest 'extranational' platform for the creation and
dissemination of political, military and corporate propaganda. Any
form of authorship. Any group (or individual) whether legitimate,
clandestine or fraudulent with access to the net may proclaim any act,
real or imagined. Within the current atmospheres of induced security,
economies of fear and pending 'terrorist' action, what are the key
roles played by the Internet in defining the legitimacy of a perceived
threat? How are the complex issued of identity and culture corrupted
when freedom of access and communication become entangled in an
ill-defined international 'war on terror' fought to a large extent
online?

The conference takes place at Auditorium.

IRC chats will be displayed next to the panel in each conference and
keynote lecture. IRC moderators will bring the questions and comments
from the chat to the onsite event. We would appreciate if you can
