On Edge: Towards an Affective Geopolitics of Bordering

Thu, Apr 19 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm
Location: 
Communication Hub of the Integrated Learning Center

The Department of Anthropology is excited to invite our sponsors to the Annual Distinguished Lecture in the Anthropology of Europe. Dr. Madeleine Reeves, Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester, will present, “On Edge: Towards an Affective Geopolitics of Bordering” on April 19, 2018 at 4pm in the Communication Hub of the Integrated Learning Center.

Dr. Reeves will examine the conversation between two trends within anthropology and critical border studies – one, the materiality of borders and two, the engagement with sensory aspects of borders through research on the intersection of affect and political life, glossed “affective geopolitics.” Reeves will explain how these two might help anthropologists make sense of the affective over-determination of borders in Central Asia, Russia, and Western Europe.

Reeves seeks to contribute to a critical anthropology of the post-Soviet state through a consideration of place, territory, transnational migration and border work, based on long-term ethnographic fieldwork in Kyrgyzstan and Russia. She is editor of Central Asian Survey and her book, Border Work (2014), received the Joseph Rothschild Prize in Nationalism and Ethnic Studies (ASN) and the Alec Nove Prize in Russian, Soviet, and Post-Soviet Studies (BASEES).
