After the apocalypse: the mediasphere, global crisis and violent ecologies

This project examines the ways in which the media shapes our thinking and practices around crisis. The study focuses particularly on the evolution of a ‘crisis consciousness’ and the ways in which human desires are implicated in the cultural politics of violence. The study focuses specifically on Australia’s participation in post-9/11 conflicts.
