International Politics Research Seminar: Professor Jenny Edkins
From One World to Another:
A semi-autobiographical narrative that considers classism and racism against the background of a movement from one class to another and the dislocation that produces. It explores notions of misinterpellation—when someone responds to a call that they know is not for them—and how such a refusal of interpellation can function politically as a decolonising move. If, instead of taking on the habits and values to which we are called, we retain our loyalty to the place we are from, then we have the potential to resist interpellation’s colonising move.
The talk is part of the International Politics Research Seminar series.
