A thorough assessment of jihadist images and videos reveals a great multiplicity of textual, verbal, and visual figurations, symbols, and patterns of appropriation. Groups and movements such as the ‘Islamic State’ articulate their claim on hegemony also by absorbing and appropriating these codes and symbols.

Historians, archivists, anyone interested in how the Episcopal Church historically has addressed the need of reconciliation in the world are invited to attend. Speakers, tours, exhibitions, worship, and workshops with an archival focus, will be woven with food and fellowship. Most activities take place at Trinity on the Green, New Haven.
