>This call for papers is for a proposed panel to be
>held at (dis)junctions: theory reloaded at the
>University of California RiversideŪs 12th Annual
>Humanities Graduate Conference on April 8-9, 2005.
>Conceptualizing the first and third world divide is
>inextricably bound up with the manner in which one
>understands/constructs history. Given the heavily
>biased representations of terrorism in regions such as
>Chechnya and Palestine, what trends are evident in the
>historical, social, and political representation of
>these groups? How are žperpetratorsÓ and žvictimsÓ
>codified in any particular discourse? Does this
>ideologically saturated discourse force blame on the
>victims? Are different or similar trends occurring in
>other national discourses? Most importantly, how does
>ideological perception affect the domestic and foreign
>policy of a particular nation or groups of nations?
>One page abstracts should be e-mailed to
>[log in to unmask] by January 7, 2005 (text
>in the body of the message; no attachments please).
