The Global Checkpoint: 'Rights' of Passage, Performances of Sovereignty

Sunday, September 25, 2011 - 3:23pm
ACLA - American Comparative Literature Association Convention, 2012; David A. Fieni, Karim Mattar (seminar organizers)

This seminar will consider and develop critical approaches to the administration of space and the ritualized regulation of flows of people and goods in the contemporary world. The checkpoint, a globally ubiquitous technology that administers space within states / colonies (e.g. Apartheid South Africa, Northern Ireland, the occupied West Bank), in warzones (Afghanistan, Iraq), and between states (India-Pakistan during Partition, East-West Berlin, US-Mexico), offers a precise and suggestive focal point for this concern.
