Migration - Unruly Thinking

With Bernd Kasparek, Ramzi Kassem, Brigitta Kuster, Sandro Mezzadra, Kim Rygiel, Isabelle Saint-Saëns and Zoran Terzić

Much critical analysis has been heaped on migration in the past decades – it seems timely to make radical claims now. In 1997 Étienne Balibar spoke about what “we” owe to the struggle of the Sans Papiers – almost 20 years later the refugee struggles are again read as a way of reinventing the political. Drawing on the discussions of the previous two rounds on migration, discussants will put forward ideas and arguments such as the “mobile undercommons”, the transformation of citizenship, new political subjectivities and migration as inalienable right. These ideas transcend the realm of analysis, they imagine different futures in an attempt to think differently about and through migration.

The discussion between the participants and the audience will be moderated by Nanna Heidenreich and Brigitta Kuster.
