    Affective Identities: Denaturalization and the Politics of Nationality in France (dissertation)

    This dissertation investigates politics of denaturalization as a system of thought that influences seminal cultural political values, such as community, nationality, citizenship, selfhood and otherness. The context of the analysis is the politics of citizenship and nationality in France. Combining research insights from history, legal studies, security studies, and border studies, the book demonstrates that the language of denaturalization shapes national identity as a form of formal legal attachment but also, and more counter-intuitively, as a mode of emotional belonging. As such, denaturalization operates as an instrumental frame to maintain and secure the national community.

    Going back to eighteenth-century France and to both World Wars, periods during which governments deployed denaturalization as a technology against “threatening” subjects, the analysis exposes how the language of denaturalization interweaves concerns about immigration and national security. It is this historical backdrop that helps understand the political impact of denaturalization in contemporary counterterrorism politics, and what is at stake when borders and identities become affective technologies.

    •  Exclusion's Circumference research group

     

    Social and cultural borders are becoming increasingly fragmented, displaced and plural. Globalization, immigration and the shifting parameters of the nation-state are topical phenomena that raise new questions concerning forms of community and that ask for new forms of representation. The growing scholarly literature on these topics translates an acute need to rethink the ways in which the dynamic of inclusion and exclusion is being understood in processes of community formation and its representation. This research group wishes to investigate whether the binary opposition between in- and exclusion is sufficient to understand the many facets of changing social relationships, political imagination, cultural representation, and juridical adaptations of this dynamic. We wish to tackle these topics from a wide and thoroughly interdisciplinary perspective, inviting scholars interested in issues of memory, heritage, identity, and representation as well as in those of migration, globalization, and national belonging. Possible case studies include the construction of national identity through militarism in Israel (Noa Roei), denaturalization laws in France (Marie Beauchamps), issues of xenophobia in South Africa (Hanneke Stuit), and participatory art and activism (Sruti Bala). Through a six-weekly reading group in which attention will be paid to a specific text’s or object’s investment in the creation and representation of exclusion, the group will work towards the organization of a symposium, which is meant to lead to the compilation of a publication on this theme.

     

     

    •  Co-organisor and coordinator of the international workshop "Security/Mobility; Between Imagination and Authority," University of Amsterdam, September 25-26, 2014.

    The workshop focused on the different ways in which security and mobility are imagined to operate in the context of preemptive modes of security, and on how these security/mobility imaginaries become sedimented in material and discursive manifestations. It interrogated the effects of security and mobility architectures in the broadest sense–including borders, databases, discourses, and bureaucracies.

     

    Keynote speakers were:

    Prof. Dr. Louise Amoore, Prefossor in the Department of Geography, Durham University

    Dr. Debbie Lisle, Senior Lecturer in International Relations and Cultural Studies, Queen's University Belfast

    • Together with Miriam Meissner and Tim Yaczo, I organized the ASCA International Workshop 2013 on the topic of mobility (association, demarcation, transformation), which took place in April 2013.

    The ASCA 2013 international workshop and conference concentrates on the notions of mobility, culture, and concepts through the themes of ‘dislocating agency’ and ‘moving objects’. We explore the cultural, political, and aesthetic values associated with phenomena of associations, demarcations, and transformations. How do ideas that ‘circulate’ affect or infect their environments? When languages or communications travel, what types of changes occur? What are the advantages or disadvantages of visualizing disciplines in terms of territories? When people ‘pass’, ‘cross over’, or ‘transition’, what do they teach us about how to imagine points of departure or destinations? Are those connections desirable or unavoidable? Over the course of the workshop, we urge questions of the imaginary and political consequences of the ways in which various cultures establish links between, on the one hand, notions of progress, revolution, integration, economic development, ageing, or healing, and, on the other hand, nomadism, border-crossing, migration, or commuting.

    The keynote speakers at the workshop were:

    • Prof. Dr. Sara Ahmed, Professor in Race and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths University of London;
    • Prof. Dr. Judith Butler, Maxine Elliot Professor in the Departments of Rhetoric and Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley and Hannah Arendt Chair at the European Graduate School;
    • Prof. Dr. Engin Isin, Professor in Politics and International Studies and Chair in Citizenship at The Open University, Milton Keynes.
