Abstract:This research builds on theories of geopolitics as discourse in examining how popular media are implicated in the production of emerging state forms in the context of the War on Terrorism. The world is increasingly marked by movement, flows, and communication that transcend political boundaries and challenge the territorial integrity of the state. Contemporary terrorism reflects these processes and is defined by relations of abjection that blur the distinctions between friend and foe. Despite the difficulty in locating terrorism, the popular idea of the state as a container of political, social, and economic processes remains influential. The state is an ongoing mediated creation that serves as an anchor of identity in an uncertain imaginary of terror. This dissertation argues the state centered discourse of terrorism is sustained through multi-scalar narratives of Muslims that reterritorialize an amorphous terror threat across a transnational imaginary of fear. The ongoing mediation of the state is a geopolitical struggle to reterritorialize the danger of contemporary terrorism as an outside threat. It is a struggle over place, scale, and identity to define an exceptional nation in an uncertain global imaginary of friends and enemies. Terrorism is reterritorialized as a bounded danger through exceptional logics of identity sustained by ‘geopolitics of displacement’. This is a performance of otherness through narratives of place, scale, and identity that resolves the indeterminate potentiality of the abject relations of terrorism. This research reveals how ‘geopolitics of displacement’ materializes the distinction between foreign and domestic and maintains the illusion of the state as a distinct political and cultural entity.
