In Search of the Political

Spring 2018

Taught By: Ticktin, Miriam

Section: A

CRN: 6425

Credits: 3

Building on Etienne Balibar’s statement that immigrants are “today’s proletarians” we will use the case of immigrants and refugees to examine what “politics” and “the political” mean today. In thinking about various types of mobility and immobility of both people and things, we will combine discussions of political theory with ethnography, novels, films and art; the goal is to explore new grammars with which to think about the political. This course fulfills requirements in Practices.
