2018/10/9 Maple J. Razsa-Insurgent Mobilities (1)
Date: 10/9 Wednesday
Venue: HA Building 2 R106, NCTU (交大人社二館 106室)
In 2015–2016, 1.2 million refugees sought safety in Europe via the Balkan Route. How, in an era of securitized borders, did this unprecedented movement of people from the global south reach the global north? Ethnographic research from two post-Yugoslav nodes along the Route—Preshevë, Serbia and Ljubljana, Slovenia—offers answers that diverge from state-centric accounts, revealing that the relationships between movements, in the sense of both migration and activism, were integral to the dynamics of the Route.
About the Speaker: Maple Razsa is an Associate Professor and Director of Global Studies at Colby College. He is committed to using text, images, and sound to embody the lived experience, as well as the political imaginations of, contemporary social movements. His films won the William A. Douglass Prize in Europeanist Anthropology and been funded by IREX, NSF, Wenner-Gren, Fulbright and Truman Foundations. His current research titled Insurgent Mobilities, a collaboration with Prof. El-Shaarawi, for which they recently received a 2018 ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowship, is on the autonomy of migration and the struggle of refugees and European activists to enact freedom of movement in Europe.
