Graphic Migrations: Hannah Arendt, Statelessness, and South Asia Across Media
March 6, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
This lecture draws upon Hannah Arendt’s theorization of statelessness to examine how migration and citizenship are represented in public culture in post-1947 South Asia.
Kavita Daiya from George Washington University maps how gender and religion inhabit a range of media representations about displacement and border-crossing that raise questions about the politics of belonging and historical memory. Juxtaposing photography, comics, and new media, she will reflect on the contemporary resonance of Arendt’s work for understanding refugee experience and imagining dissent in South Asia.
