Gender and Extremism conference

On May 14/15 2018, Dr Maria Flood (Lecturer in Film Studies) was invited to participate in a cross-disciplinary conference on ‘Gender and Extremism’ at C-REX, the Centre for Research on Extremism in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Oslo. Dr Flood’s paper examined some recent examples from North African cinema to show how factors like youth vulnerability to the social and economic changes brought on by globalization can feed into extremist narratives of personal and political humiliation of the Muslim world by Western powers.
