This seminar brings together varied theoretical interventions that disrupt the totalizing frameworks of biopolitics and necropolitics. The class will engage with fiction, new media, ethnography and critical theory from the interdisciplinary fields of Black Studies, Dalit Studies, South Asian Studies, queer, trans and feminist studies and indigenous studies to ask what social worlds are generated by violence and most importantly how life persists surrounded by death. Hortense Spillers, Saidiya Hartman, Christina Sharpe, Eva Tuck, Shailaja Paik, Anand Taneja, Omar Kasmani, Lisa Stevenson, Nayanika Mookherjee, Juana Maria Rodriguez and Malik Sajad are some of the authors we will engage with.
