PARSE: Crises, Convulsions, Concurrences: Human Mobility, the European Geography of "Exclusion" and the Postcolonial Dialectics of Subordinate Inclusion


As part of the PARSE conference, Nicholas de Genova will hold a keynote speech on the subject of human mobility, borders, identity and the European geography of exclusion.

Over the last few years, we have witnessed a remarkable conjuncture between the escalation, acceleration, and diversification of migrant and refugee mobilities into and across the space of "Europe", on the one hand, and the mutually constitutive crises of "European" borders and "European" identity.

Put differently, we have witnessed the autonomy of migrant and refugee movements significantly subvert the borders of Europe, on the one hand, and multiple convulsive reaction formations of re-bordering by the sovereign authorities of the European border regime, on the other.

Notably, this means that the acceleration of cross-border mobilities and the ensuing "crisis" of borders instigated by migrants and refugees have been met with a variety of tactics of (re-)bordering largely dedicated not simply to "exclusion" but, rather more pragmatically, to the coercive deceleration of autonomous human mobilities.

Of course, alongside this larger reaction formation of border fortification and securitization, there has been the resurgence of reanimated reactionary populist nationalisms and racial nativisms, as well as the routinization of antiterrorist securitization measures and a pervasive and entrenched cultural politics of "Islamophobia" (or more precisely, anti-Muslim racism), all of which contribute to a larger "European" malaise chiefly distinguished by spectacles of "exclusion".

Nonetheless, the sheer magnitude and momentum of migrant and refugee movements has meant that the sociopolitical space of "Europe" has been convulsed by a postcolonial racial crisis arising from the contradictions of the subjective projects of migrant/refugee non-Europeans and states' efforts to "manage" their subordinate inclusion.

NOTE! This Key note speech is an open session, but we encourage you to come early because the number of seats are limited to 300 and there are 220 participants attending the conference.
