'I am Elizabeth Reegan and another day of my life is beginning' she said to herself. 'I am lying here in bed. I've been five weeks sick in bed, and there is no sign of me getting better. Though there's little pain, which is lucky, and the worst is fear and remorse and often the horrible meaninglessness of it all. Sometimes meaning and peace come but I lose them again, nothing in life is ever resolved once and for all.
- John McGahern, The Barracks (1963)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry

The recent refugee crisis in Europe has brought to the fore the pressing aspects of the precarious nature of human life. This is not a sudden crisis as scholars have traced its historical roots with the exploits of "Western" capitalism, imperialism, environment, and war on terror. Such engagement has also given us different politico-philosophical points of analysis of the condition: for instance, the rise of terms such as "precariat," "new subaltern," "precarity" (Guy Standing; Simon During), the debates on "Anthropocene" and "capitalocene" (Dipesh Chakraborty; Jason W Moore), or the interest in neuro-biological or communal human affects (Catherine Malabou; Judith Butler). Added to such is the challenge of the machines and objects in our daily life.
