  • The Islamic State: constructing identity and articulating propagandistic
           discourse through intertextuality and recontextualisation

    • Abstract: This paper examines the discourse of the Islamic State (IS) as a terrorist group claiming Islamic authenticity and the right to establish khilafa. The analysis of multimodal texts produced and posted online by this group shows how their discourse uses intertextuality and recontextualisation to authenticate their political practice in religious terms, and how they employ strategies of horizontal and vertical propaganda to maintain control and hegemony, and instil fear and terror in the lives of civilians and belligerents alike. The analysis shows that in order to survive, their discourse shifts positions in response to needs, desires and antagonistic social realities. The discussion of these shifting positions reveals the political foundation of their alleged religious discourse and shows how this will change in the course of history.

  • What causes radicalisation' Voices of Uyghur Muslims in Canada

    • Abstract: Uyghurs, as a group, have been targeted recently by the Chinese government as possible terrorists. Against such a background, this article discusses the perspectives of twelve Muslim Uyghur immigrants in Canada on the possible causes of radicalisation. They vehemently rejected the idea that the Islamic faith was a push factor behind the radicalisation of Uyghurs. For them, the oppressive political climate in China was the only culprit. While their voices regarding radicalised Canadians reveal their misrepresented Muslim identity, they also demonstrate a strong resistance to the official Chinese narratives around Uyghur radicalisation. Their postcolonial voices in Canada turn into agency in the context of China.  Published on 2022-03-24 10:29:36

  • Book review: Hate in the homeland: the new global far right

    • Abstract: This review evaluates Cynthia Miller-Idriss’ Hate in the homeland: the new global far right. Miller-Idriss’ six-chapter book offers a concise, yet thorough overview of the unique – and at the same time mundane – places and spaces at which extremist radicalisation takes place. Given her expertise in the subject matter, Miller-Idriss makes a compelling case for the mainstreaming of extremism that opens readers’ eyes to the global interconnectedness of today’s far right. The review will note the greatest strengths of the book, while emphasising its relevance for readers. Published on 2022-02-03 00:00:00
  • Doing memory with needle and thread: narrating transformations of violent

    • Abstract: The two authors embark on a conversation about how textiles open up space for different kinds of storytelling — understood as central to interpretive research — about violence, memory and transformation in the aftermath of armed conflict. They draw on their respective research and experiences in the context of the armed conflict and fragile peace process in Colombia, where Roxani investigates the politics and hierarchies of victimhood, and Berit is involved in a project that combines narrative practice and textile narratives into a methodology to explore former guerrilla combatants’ subjectivities and wider society’s resonances to their preferred stories. Photos of textiles and textile-making accompany their conversation. Published on 2022-01-05 16:00:55
  • Questioning our actions: conversations around the politics of collective
           embroidery across space and time

    • Abstract: Embroidery has been used by communities to testify to violence for many years but these experiences were often marginalised. A recent proliferation of international textile responses to such crises, however, and a visibilisation of textiles in general, have been enabled through social media. This contribution reflects on a Whatsapp conversation across space and time between friends, who have been participating in personal and collective embroidery projects. In this piece, we wish to reveal the role of conversation and its relationship to embroidery work, and how it sustains solidarity, as we question the politics and implications of our actions.

  • Camouflage aesthetics: militarisation, craftivism, and the in/ visibility
           of resistance at scale

    • Abstract: This intervention offers an aesthetic contribution to the studies of camouflage cultures by situating them in contemporary Ukraine. Using collaging as an analytic technique, I present three ontological cuts that demonstrate how scraps of camouflage remediate the spaces in which war is produced, contemplated and fought. Interrogating the relationship between visibility and survival on a macroscopic scale, I ask: how can camouflage scraps – textiles whose primary function is to conceal – work to reclaim the agency of those who craft them' I draw on the Ukrainian context to argue that not all militarisations are equal - cutting and layering the scraps of the Soviet/imperial military-industrial complex onto a new plane of representation, Ukrainian craftivists make a decolonial cut from Ukraine’s Soviet past, reconstituting the social fabric torn in three centuries of wars and occupation. As hegemonic imperialist discourses continue to erase lived experiences of military violence, camouflage aesthetic may also become a symbol of collective resistance. Published on 2022-01-05 16:00:18
  • A migrant and her two-year-old daughter in Tijuana

    • Abstract: The poem responds to a photograph by Ilana Panich-Linsman that appeared in the magazine Mother Jones. It depicts a migrant, Arlen Cruz, holding her two year-old daughter as rain soaks the camp at a sports complex in Tijuana, Mexico, where many migrants in the caravan from Central America had been staying for two weeks.

  • Recovering the Past: A Photographic Exhibition by Ian Alderman

    • Abstract: In this article I argue that, like textiles, photography can be a way to ‘stitch voices’ together. The article is based on an interview with the photographer Ian Alderman and a review of his travelling exhibition Recovering the Past. In his photographs, Alderman superimposes black and white images of groups of Australian soldiers who fought during the Great War and colour images of contemporary deminers during their daily work in the fields of West Flanders. As with conflict textiles, Alderman’s photographic ‘collages’ create objects that draw attention to the immediate and long-term consequences of war. Because of this focus on the effects of war, his photographs can be considered as ‘aftermath photography’. This article first introduces commonalities between photography and textiles. Then, it presents some of the exhibition photographs, connecting them with themes that emerged from the interview. Published on 2022-01-05 15:59:38
