On Walls, Borders, and Occupations: Securitized Regimes, Anatomies of Violence and Feminist Critique

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 00:00 to 02:00

Framed within the context of a recent feminist of color solidarity
delegation to Palestine, this talk focuses on the colonized anatomies of
violence mobilized by the 'democracies' of the USA, Israel, and India.
Arguing that these securitized regimes utilize particular and connected
racial and gendered ideologies and practices at their social and
territorial borders, the lecture suggests a vision of cross-border feminist
solidarity that confronts neoliberal militarization globally.

 

Chandra Talpade Mohanty is Professor of Women's and Gender Studies and Dean's Professor of the Humanities at Syracuse University. Her work focuses on transnational feminist theory, anti-capitalist feminist praxis, anti-racist education, and the politics of knowledge.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
