Taught By: Ashley Bohrer
This course interrogates the concept of capture and two theoretical renderings of resisting capture: fugitivity and abolition. Grounded in explorations of two specific modes of capture -- slavery and incarceration -- we will investigate the conceptual and politcal contours of the problematic of capture in their historicity, present, and conceptual grammars. Grounded in explicit considerations of race, gender, sexuality, and capital, we will look at the political resistance embodied by fugitivity and abolition, as well as the vision of liberation contained in those concepts.
