Panel to Discuss the Post-Sept. 11 Language of Fear
St. Lawrence University’s Department of Global Studies will host a panel discussion titled “Making the ‘War on Terror’: Past, Present, and Future,” from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, in Sykes Common Room. The event is free and open to the public.
Eighteen years after the September 11 attacks and declaration of the US-led "war on terror," global violence continues to be framed through the use of words and phrases that are designed to generate fear and produce public consent. A group of St. Lawrence faculty began using the term "collateral language" to describe this process in a 2002 book by the same name.
