The Center for Place, Culture and Politics presents: Mobilizations and Migrations

April 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
However the international order is characterized, it is clear that various forms of internationalism are in distress. These are at work both in producing violent conflagration and in generating moving populations across the globe (migrant labor, refugees, asylum seekers, exiles, emigres, etc.). How, then, can internationalism be thought and articulated anew? How can it productively and creatively address various modes of encounter and representation? How can it build on radical genealogies of international solidarity in ways that interlink vital discussions of borders and walls with the systemic relations of racial capitalism and its spatial fixes in the current conjuncture? How do migrations mediate mobilizations as political possibility? Do revolutionary/decolonial reconfigurations of people in/against territories represent the new horizon of internationalism? How does culture, for instance, mediate the complex parameters of space, place, and the movements between both to fathom contemporary crises and to enable a positive knowledge of their solution?
