Gräf, Bettina ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0003-4933-6202 (2022): On naming drones: a European perspective. In: Digital War, Vol. 3, No. 1-3: pp. 53-66 [PDF, 1MB]


This article discusses the naming of military drone technology by different actors. It thus explores the tension between producing, using, and experiencing drone technology. I will look at, among other things, the project of a drone called the Euro Hawk while reflecting on the experiences and perceptions of people from “outside” Europe. For my investigation, I used three types of journalistic texts in Arabic: (1) texts produced by professional platforms that are financed by European governments like Deutsche Welle and Qantara.de, (2) texts published on the news platform Aljazeera.net and (3) entries at the popular online encyclopedia Wikipedia.
