Description

Terror on Tour III: Borders, Detours & Contingencies

After successful interventions at the University of Roehampton (2015) and the University of Chichester (2016), the Terror on Tour colloquium crosses physical, conceptual, and disciplinary borders once again for a three-day symposium at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.

Continuing the critical conversation around the conjunctions of terrorism and tourism, Terror on Tour 2017 will specifically address the status of borders and (terrorist) border-crossings, terror/touring going ‘off-piste’/going awry, and the contingencies of travelling at the present historical juncture.

How do state terror and insurgency affect the current re-drawing and fortifi­cation of borders across Europe, and globally? What modes of alternative travel, radical tours, and detours can serve to counter the detrimental aspects of the technologies of security established around travelling (racial profiling, the hazards of ‘flying while brown’ etc.)? What are (the limits of) our roles as academics and artists in view of the current geopolitical conjunctions of terrorism and tourism?
