Knowledge, Violence, Discipline: (Re)Thinking Politics + the University
We seek submissions that both implicitly and explicitly engage these issues.
Topics to consider include:
. How does violence invest knowledge-production, and what are the
(unintended) productivities of this relation?
. What is at stake in the contemporary 'redisciplinarization' of and
'tokenization' within the university?
. How do we understand/combat the instrumentalization and militarization of
knowledge in the context of an increasingly 'entrepreneurial' academy?
. What are the contemporary possibilities of forming inter-, intra-, and
para-institutional collectivities, or of political engagements that reside
in but transcend the space of the University? How do these current
possibilities relate to many legacies of resisting violence and transforming
not just the academy but the social at large?
