dc.description.abstractWith the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai, we see a new trend in the way in which terror operates within urban spaces, with cities becoming battlefields and the state and military discourses moving to re-territorialize more fluid civilian spaces. This paper looks Indian newspaper coverage of the 2008 attacks on Mumbai as a case study in how the values of global capitalism discursively construct the context of the attack and how the capitalism’s discursive practices place local values and identities inside a structure that constructs Mumbai as a typical site within a new type of global terror whose threat is insidious and can be stemmed only through constant militarism. By critically understanding the popular discourses surrounding the attacks, we can start to search for and create alternative discourses about terrorism that do not lock countries and citizens within a logic of perpetual militarism and victimhood.
