|[Nettime-nl] Lezing morgen (3-5pm) UvA/Amidst: Banal Terrorism: Terror, Scale, and White Supremacy|
Kan interessant zijn... Banal Terrorism: Terror, Scale, and White Supremacy by Lawrence D. Berg (Centre for Social, Spatial & Economic Justice University of British Columbia, Canada) Wednesday, 23 September 15.00-17.00 hrs Nieuwe Prinsengracht 130 (voorheen Geologisch Instituut Roeterstraat/Plantage buurt) Building G - Room G. S04 Followed by drinks in the lobby of building G (First floor) Abstract This presentation theorizes the problematic ways that terror and violence are produced in hegemonic discourses of 'the war on terror'. The paper draws on anti-racist, feminist, postcolonial and poststructuralist approaches to explore the way that processes of racialization, scalar politics and gendered ideologies work in interlocking ways that socially construct particular understandings of terror and violence that must be responded to by the state. These racialized, classed, gendered and scaled processes work in ways that hide some forms of violence on some women's bodies, while simultaneously highlighting violence on other women's bodies. Biography: Lawrence Berg is co-director of the inter-disciplinary UBC Centre for Social, Spatial & Economic Justice, a position he took up after completing his term as Canada Research Chair in Human Rights, Diversity & Identity at the University of British Columbia.
