This annual Spring 2019 conference proposed the concept of “insecurity” as one of the governing logics of economic, political, and social life in the West at the end of the second decade of the 21st century. Insecurity aimed to engage and challenge several key concepts of 21st century studies, especially “precarity,” “securitization,” and “resilience.”
Plenary speakers for the conference included: Jennifer Doyle (UC Riverside), Annie McClanahan (UC Irvine), Mark Neocleous (Brunel University London), Naomi Paik (Illinois), and Saskia Sassen (Columbia).
