CRITICAL THEORY WORKING GROUP | COLLABORATIONS, CO-OPERATIVES, COALITION-BUILDING | Global Networks

Following Michael Hardt’s campus visit, our November working group pans out from the contested form of nation-state to the flows and frictions of the international and transnational informe. The conversation this month is engaged with the politics of representing (making visible) the way in which labor, bodies, and information move through largely unregulated international distribution routes. What are the different choreographies of capital, across bodies, shipping containers, and seas? How and where is circulation visible? And what would it mean/what would it look like to circulate, or move, differently?

Co-facilitators:

Christian Nagler, PhD candidate in the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies, UC Berkeley; Bay Area-based artist

Elizabeth Sibilia, PhD candidate in the Department of Geography, CUNY Graduate Center; Lecturer in the Department of Geography, San Jose State University
