www.peaceconsortium.org <http://www.peaceconsortium.org/>
Over the last five years, the language of violence has entered public 
discourse more than ever before. Words like "war," "terrorism," even "peace" 
are being used in new ways. In this conference we want to ask questions 
about the use and meaning of language and the way language shapes public 
consciousness, ethical thinking and responses to violence (in the media, 
from government and military spokespeople, in entertainment, in the 
academy). We invite proposals from professors, activists, graduate and 
undergraduate students, across the disciplines, in areas relating to, but no 
restricted to, the rhetoric of violence.
