Between the 16th and the 19th century, a new awareness and new uses of the nighttime slowly but unmistakably spread through different parts of the world, whereby new regimes of temporality redefined the spheres of work and leisure, of activity and repose. Social life, as well as labor and entertainment, spilled over into the night hours, inviting the use of psychotropic substances such as coffee and tea and a sense of the manipulability of the architecture of night and day.

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. Despite the fundamental polysemy of these signs, Jihadists seek to classify them as unambiguous and interpret them corresponding to their own ideology.
