    Programme 2018

    Our seminar will discuss the concept of the ‘crisis’ as a neoliberal technology of governance placing special emphasis on the biopolitical and thanatopolitical facets of exclusion in Modern Greece. Crises –we argue–produce states of exception, and facilitate the solidification of institutionalised asymmetries between places, spaces and social actors. Drawing from ethnographies of migration –past and present– and research on the effects of the Greek financial meltdown, we initiate a postcolonial analysis of the role of critical events in the coagulation of culturalist and racialised representations of what it means to be ‘Greek’ and ‘European’. Revisiting the intricate relations between mimesis and alterity in their spatial, narrative and embodied expressions, we examine the emergence of new geometries of power and geographies of risk and exclusion. Examining an array of public responses to recent political developments in Greece, we turn the focus to new visions of citizenship and sociality born out of critical historical conditions.
