Understanding Islamic State (ISIS): Media and Communication Perspectives

April 25, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


On March 23, 2019, the last ISIS-controlled territory in Syria was liberated. While the U.S. administration has
been quick to declare the defeat of the Caliphate, many analysts argue that ISIS’ ideology continues to attract new supporters. Media and communication play a crucial role in ISIS’ recruitment, and sophisticated analyses of the mediation of global extremism are needed more than ever.

Research presentations and discussions:

Is it One Caliphate or More? Evaluating ISIS and Al-Qaeda’s Mediated Statehood by Kareem El Damanhoury, PhD, Georgia State University

Violence and the Apocalypse of Hope in an Age of Hypermediated Flows by Nabil Echchaibi, PhD, University of Colorado Boulder

Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

LOCATION: The Forum (Room 1020), Sie Complex

This event is funded by a Dean’s Award for Interdisciplinary Studies provided by the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences.
