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

updated: 
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.

Violence and Representation

updated: 
Saturday, September 24, 2011 - 2:07pm
Jaclyn Simon (University of Southern California), Ricardo Wilson (University of Southern California)

Epistemic shifts are themselves inherently violent and the uncertainty and instability that these shifts produce frequently elicit a violent response. This seminar intends to put into conversation scholarly works that explore both the representation of violent acts and the violence of representation. We are interested in a diverse conversation across multiple disciplines and seek papers that deal with literary, cinematic, performative or documentary texts.

'I cannot move without it. I cannot leave it there where it is, so that I, myself, may go elsewhere. I can go to the other end of the world; I can hide in the morning under the covers, make myself as small as possible. I can even let myself melt under the sun at the beach – it will always be there. Where I am. It is here, irreparably; it is never elsewhere. My body' – Michel Foucault
