Violence and Necropolitics
2352 N Clifton Ave
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Our socio-political present is marked by an admixture of violence––some
inherited, stable structures and systems, some transformations and renewals
of old forms of violence, and some wholly new phenomena. All of these
urgently require conceptual frameworks which can make them intelligible
and thus act as a step towards resistance. Movements of resistance and
response to the violence of the present likewise require analysis and
conceptualization. Confrontations with these myriad forms of violence
provide thinkers today with vastly different access-points for conceptualizing
harm. These diverse perspectives can shed light on the radically different
types of violence constitutive, characteristic, and resultant of our social,
political, and economic structures, and our everyday ethical dealings.
This conference is open to a wide range of topics and approaches, including:
· Ongoing structural violence instated by colonialism, racism, sexism and
resulting instances of physical violence
· Trauma and reconstituting the self
· Biopolitics and Necropolitics
· Rhetoric of violence
· Legitimacy of violence as an ethical response
· Retributive and restorative justice
· General possibilities of ethical community
This is a student event (e.g. a graduate conference).
