Territories of Thought - theory@buffalo (Journal, Issue 14; 9/1/09)

Territories of Thought

The slogan “Land and Freedom” articulates a relationship between territory and thought; it suggests the interpenetration of materiality and philosophy. It is our claim that freedom – the central concept of political thought as such – is fundamentally predicated on the tension between the materiality and the mythos of land. Further, “Land and Freedom” suggests the spatial and republican underpinnings of a particular political ontology, one that resonates, for example, with “territory and desire” in Deleuze and Guattari and “world and Being” in Heidegger. What, then, is the relationship of this spatialized political ontology to new forms of territorial organization wrought by neoliberal and neocolonial policies? From structural adjustments to special economic zones (SEZ’s), from resource wars to private investment in third-world agriculture, the massive force of accumulation and capitalization indicates the emergence of a new class of spaces secure for the techno-political logic of capitalism. Within the space of this logic, what remains of freedom? Of philosophy?

We welcome all papers dealing with the spatial articulation of political/philosophical concepts. Possible topics might include: relations between property, territory, and law; old and new spaces of capital; territory and violence; the spatial unconscious of philosophical concepts; topographies of subjectivity; political ontology; cognitive mapping; any number of post-structural concepts from territorialization to geophilosophy, from mondialisation to dissemination; Lefebvre and post-Lefebvrian Marxism, including Situationist psychogeographies and the space of the spectacle; Foucault and geography; primitive accumulation and the dispossession of land; the “camp” as biopolitical paradigm; critical reflections on border studies and so-called globalization.

Submissions are welcome from any disciplinary field, including social theory, literary studies, political theory, philosophy, geography, postcolonial studies, architecture, cultural studies, media studies, etc.
theory@buffalo also accepts book reviews. These can be on any topic and must be 1,200 words or less. All other submissions must be 10,000 words maximum. Please send two blind copies with a cover page to the address below, or send an electronic copy as an attachment in Microsoft Word to: lam1jd@gmail.com or prc3@buffalo.edu, RE: theory@buffalo 14.

All submissions are due September 1, 2009.
