Abstract

82
This paper studies the form and emergence of the construction and representation of the self-proclamed State of caliphate by Islamic State. Dabiq magazine, the bridge between the organization and its readers (allies and enemies) has been used completely in this paper (15 total issues) with the purpose of knowing and comprehending critically how ISIS uses a propagandist and its communicative line to construct and represent itself and its idea of State as safe and pious. Great quality visual and textual resources of the magazine reproduce the populist, hegemonic and antagonistic self-construction of the caliphate as a form of life and government. It will also show the self-projection of ISIS to the outside and the we-other equation. In short, this work aims to approach the propagandistic discourse of an organization that shapes itself as the savior of society, designed and self-proclaimed through social institutions and forms of government that reinforce its domination and particular cultural hegemony.
