22. CALL FOR PAPERS: "The new 'others': western media and society post-9/11"
Deadline for articles: 31 May, 2003

September 11 (or "9/11") marks a watershed for a complex of issues to do with the relationship between the "West" and the Arab/Muslim  world.  Before September 11 2001 the 'othering' of the Arab-Muslim  world was already evident in Australia (the "Tampa incident", 
Lebanese "gangs" etc.), but after that date the discourse of fear and  otherness is given more of a pretext and includes, for example, the  "Children Overboard" affair and, tragically, the October 2002 bombing  of Western tourists in Bali. The media are a crucial factor in the construction of cultural  understandings of these events and issues.  In this issue of MIA we invite contributions exploring the media's role in constructing our  understandings of the Arab/Muslim world, especially in relation to recent events and contemporary issues such as: September 11, refugees and asylum seekers, terrorism, the war in Afghanistan, "regime change" in Iraq, anti-Western sentiments and, possibly, the impetus for the West to identify a new 'other' in the post-Soviet era.
