Does location matter?

.

Overview

What are our responsibilities towards the stranger? How does liberal statecraft frame our actions through laws and moralities? When does location matter? These are some of the questions that will guide our explorations towards the contemporary infrastructure of rights and responsibilities, with a focus on refugees, rescues and indifference at European borders.

 

Speaker

Dr Tugba Basaran is director of the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement and fellow of 鶹ӾCollege. She is also a member of the 鶹ӾREACH Research Hub. Her research is on politics, law and society. In her research, she seeks to extrapolate past and present formations of governance, prompting queries on law’s subjectivities, space and time, in an effort to reimagine politics, the way we govern and are governed. She is author of the monograph ‘Security, Law and Borders: At the Limit of Liberties’.

The talk will be chaired by Raquel Scarpa-Gebara, Co-convenor of the 鶹ӾREACH Research Hub.

How did people in eighteenth-century Europe react to the dictionary genre as a new information technology, and what can these reactions tell us about changing attitudes towards knowledge and learning in the age of Enlightenment?
