The In/Security of New Media: Palimpsest, Procedure, Network

This book project argues that rhetorical infrastructures in emerging media forms are creating an alternate conception of territoriality/colonial topography. That is, the structures themselves, the networks, palimpsests, and procedures that constitute these forms are significantly shifting conventional perceptions of bounded territory, and in doing so reshape feelings of belonging, military processes, and modes of resistance in areas of conflict. Through a comparative media approach, this project contends that spatialized and networked media forms can intervene in exclusionary depictions of geohistorical memory in areas of territorial conflict. While digital networks are often created and utilized by military institutions, spatialized and networked forms can be harnessed to resist dangerous practices of return and retaliation. The media forms in this project focus on the relationship between discourses of contemporary homeland and increasingly militarized spaces in the US, Israel-Palestine and beyond, and in doing so reflect on larger transnational logics of security and militarism in the twenty-first century.
