This presentation theorizes the problematic ways that terror and
violence are produced in hegemonic discourses of 'the war on terror'.
The paper draws on anti-racist, feminist, postcolonial and
poststructuralist approaches to explore the way that processes of
racialization, scalar politics and gendered ideologies work in
interlocking ways that socially construct particular understandings of
terror and violence that must be responded to by the state.   These
racialized, classed, gendered and scaled processes work in ways that
hide some forms of violence on some women's bodies, while simultaneously
highlighting violence on other women's bodies.
