9/11 should set a reminder for us to always question and analyse the dominant narratives circulated by power structure. In this video, Prof Mohan addresses the need for us to critically interrogate the discourse and arguments presented by the United States, paying particular attention to the roles played by the US in reproducing “terror” across the Middle East.
Prof Mohan investigates the dismissal of Professor Steven Salaita by The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign due to his actions of not following the normative ideas of civility. Prof Mohan questions what really is civility, especially how it is defined in the context of social media. He also addresses what are the norms around this concept of civility and the governing structures that determine the implementation of these norms.
