Center for Humanities: Monday Night Lecture Series

06:00 pm

Anthony Hatch, Wesleyan Black Phoenix Rising: Death and Resurrection of Black Lives In the face of violent anti-black forms of institutionalized racism, black people are forced to find new ways to refuse being killed. Yet, in the wake of successful racist killings, the deaths of black people take on new meanings that give life and hope to those who survive. The deaths of black people become sources of collective and symbolic power for the living. Positioning the Black Lives Matter Movement in the context of necropolitics helps renew our collective need to theorize the value and meaning of black lives within a deluge of death and disappearance in black communities. This movement is part of a broader intellectual tradition in black radical praxis that aims to transform scholarly, activist, and public discourse and public policies concerning anti-black racisms and the prospects for antiracist futures. By drawing on this broader tradition, this lecture envisions a black radical praxis that simultaneously recognizes how black people resist death and transform symbolic meanings of death in ways that push back against anti-black racisms.

06:00 pm

Javier Auyero, University Texas Austin Urban Marginality and the Ambivalent State in Latin America Drawing upon long-term ethnographic fieldwork in a poor high-crime neighborhood and documentary evidence from court cases involving drugs gangs, this talk examines the clandestine connections between participants in the illicit drug trade and members of the state security forces. The talk unpacks the much-referred to (but seldom scrutinized) content of police-criminal collusion by tracing the flow of goods, information, representation, and advice between agents of the state and gang members. Illicit relationships with authorities, this talk will show, serve gang members to achieve control over a territory that is central to their illegal trade, feed violence experienced by the poor, and foster widespread legal cynicism at the urban margins.

Hans Ruin, Sodertorn University Gifts from the dead - Heritage, Historicity, and Receiving the Past The lecture explores the philosophical implications of heritage and inheritance, as a exemplary form in and through the living are connected to the dead. It discusses how the notion of inheritance was both used and problematized within phenomenological and hermeneutic philosophy as a way of thinking the nature and inner dynamic of historicity. In Being and Time , Heidegger describes the essential structure of historicity precisely in terms of a heritage ( Erbe ) that we are. In Specters of Marx Derrida takes it up again in the context of an ontology and ethics of spectrality, as in fact a politics of memory, inheritance and generations. Over the last two decades heritage has become a keyword in the humanities and the center-piece of a rapidly expanding new field, cultural heritage studies, where it is often reified as a social reality with significant political, economic and ethical consequences. In order to think through this disputedconcept and the field of human experience that it designates, we need to mobilize the full scope of a necropolitical analysis, that can see human historicalexistence and experience as a mode ofbeing-with-the-dead. Already in Zarathustra Nietzsche had warned: Gefhrlich ist es, Erbe zu sein It is dangerous to beHeritage.
