Border Walls and the Politics of Becoming Non Human
Start Date: 4/21/2017Start Time: 2:30 PM
End Date: 4/21/2017End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:
A lecture by Dr. Miriam Ticktin, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Co-Director of the Zolberg Institute for Migration and Mobility, The New School for Social Research

In this talk I am concerned by the ways in which border walls and zones come not simply to defend (i.e. certain territories), but to define -- that is, to shape or alter categories of natural and human kinds. I will suggest that borders walls, and all the surrounding and auxiliary technologies they harness, work by shifting how we understand different kinds of beings, ultimately rendering certain kinds killable.
