The Africa-Diaspora Forum Presents: Silence, Taboo, and Everyday Practices of Revolution: What Sovereignty Feels Like
Much has been written about the effects of extreme violence - and particularly state violence - on individuals and communities throughout the world. Attention has tended to focus on the forms of marginalization and exclusion generated by and through violence, on the "bare life" and "exceptionality" that has been theorized by a range of European political philosophers. This presentation will examine sovereignty, in both its conventional registers, outside the state by highlighting instead its everyday practice.
