"Politics and Ontology"

 

Organizer: Matthew Scully (Emerson College)

 

Politics, as that which relates to the organization of public life, and ontology, as the study of being, have long been intertwined. Left/right identity politics, for example, often ground themselves on an ontologized, or essentialized, identity. In contrast, many theorists view politics as the construction of identity. Jacques Rancière, for instance, insists that politics determines the ontological status of its subjects, rather than the reverse; no “human being” preexists the political act.

Whether it is some sort of histrionic hyperbole or an actual description of our current state of affairs, it’s not a novel assertion to say that the West seems to be on the verge of collapse. If this is the case, the time and esotericism that psychoanalysis requires seems, yet again, to position it entirely on the axis of outdated luxury rather than sophisticated, trenchant, or even useful political analysis.

The Shadow Lines (1988) is Amitav Ghosh’s acclaimed masterpiece. The novel won the Sahitya Akademi award, India’s most prestigious annual literary prize, as well as the Ananda Puraskar in 1990. The novel has gained enormous resonance in postcolonial studies as it touches upon some of the major issues in the fields of colonial history, national identities, memory,time and space, hybridity, transnationalism and borders. It has been seminal in the definition and discussion of a postcolonial cartography.
