INSURRECTIONIST PEDAGOGIES AND THE PURSUIT OF DANGEROUS CITIZENSHIP

Insurrectionist Pedagogies and the Pursuit of Dangerous Citizenship

Professor E . Wayne Ross

University of British Columbia

The 6th Annual Mary Hepburn Lecture in Social Studies Education

Department of Educational Theory & Practice, College of Education, University of Georgia

Athens, GA

October 16, 2014

6.00-7.00pm

Lamar School of Art

Room S151

Light refreshments served at 5.30.

It is more important than ever for people to understand birthplace, nationality, documents, and platitudes are not enough to fulfil the promises of citizenship— that is, for example, freedom. Freedom and the fulfillment of its virtues are unfinished, an ongoing dynamic struggle. Too often citizenship education implies docile, conforming, spectator behavior and thought.

Contemporary conditions demand an anti-oppressive citizenship education, one that takes seriously social and economic inequalities and oppression that result from neoliberal capitalism. While we can build upon the anti-oppressive possibilities of established, officially sanctioned pedagogies, that is not enough.

This lecture will explore imaginaries that might serve as the basis for the creation of pedagogies of dangerous citizenship. The pedagogical power of dangerous citizenship, resides in its capacity to encourage us to challenge the implications of own work; to envision an education that is free and democratic to the core; and to interrogate and uncover our own well-intentioned complicity in oppressive educational and cultural practices.

POLITICAL ACTION, RESILIENCE AND SOLIDARITY: CALL FOR PAPERS – EXTENDED CALL

Political Action, Resilience and Solidarity: An inter-disciplinary, inter-institutional workshop 

Call for Papers

Event organisers:
Nicholas Michelsen, King’s College London
Wanda Vrasti, University of Humboldt

In association with:
• Centre of Integrated Research in Risk and Resilience, King’s College London.
• Research Centre in International Relations, Department of War Studies, King’s
• College London.
• Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance, The Open University
• Centre for the Study of Democracy, Westminster University.

Location: King’s College London.

Thursday the 18th and Friday the 19th of September 2014

The concept of resilience first appeared as a means to articulate how complex ecosystems are able to meet the challenges of radically shifting environmental conditions whilst retaining their key functionalities. Thinking in terms of resilience is deemed to offer an advance on previous approaches to risk-management in that it is concerned with fostering the adaptive capacities that are innate to any system. Inasmuch as resilience allows a system, community or agent’s inherent openness to the unexpected to become a source of beneficiary adaptation, it has garnered attention in a wide number of fields, from socio-ecological systems to psychology, disaster risk management, urban and national infrastructure design, post-conflict development and public health planning. Across these fields, the concept of resilience increasingly frames the possibility of spaces for policy action, offering a heuristic device under which the defining problems of our era of supposedly unalloyed uncertainty and insecurity can be addressed.

Contemporary debates around resilience have centred on the political content of the concept. Whereas in socio-ecological literatures, the concept has retained a broadly positive connotation, as a means to conceptualise sustainable resource management, in its wider usage, resilience is subject to critique as informing a conservative, indeed pacifying  rationality of governance (“resilience from above”). Resilience seems to bypass any suggestion that extant (social, economic, political and ecological) circumstances might be subjected to a wider or structural critique.

In this context, resilience is often contrasted with explicitly political concepts like Solidarity. Whereas resilience seems to suggest adaptation and immunisation in the face of complex unalterable forces, solidarity offers a means to challenge and alter extant conditions. By contrast with resilience, however, the concept of solidarity suffers from significant under-theorisation in contemporary literatures. What does it mean to “act in solidarity” with something or someone, and how is this related to the performance of political subjectivity or citizenship? What does it mean for activists in Tahrir Square to stand in solidarity with government employees in Madison? We suspect that the concept must be more than just an affective unification of a group of otherwise disparate actors. Indeed, rather than being diametrically opposed concepts, solidarity seems a precondition for community resilience (“resilience from below”). In this sense, perhaps it is at the intersection of solidarity and resilience that effective political action can occur.

Equally important is the intersection between resilience and democratic citizenship. Resilience often refers to policies that aim at making citizens able to cope with sudden changes in their life through, among other methods, taking therapeutic measures; informing them what to do in times of disaster; and supporting critical infrastructure so important activities can continue. Yet, this understanding of resilience eschews the idea that coping with depletion of rights requires new rights claims. Rights to housing, care, political participation, and so on, are mostly ignored. Resilience policies become in their effects ‘managerial’. They tell citizens what to do and they avoid the fundamental democratic questions about what social, economic and political rights and lives citizens demand. At this intersection between rights claims and resilience, resilience from below — what people do in response to crises and precarity – attains democratic political rather than managerial significance.

This collaborative inter-institutional and interdisciplinary workshop is concerned to examine and problematize the distinct genealogies and interaction of the concepts of Resilience, Solidarity, and democratic citizenship with particular focus on the problem of political action or agency. It aims to explore the ways in which community resilience may be associated or contrasted with the mechanisms underpinning social and political solidarity and with new rights claims. A number of related concepts, such as identity, acts of citizenship and political agency, are clearly of relevance in this context. As such, we invite paper abstracts of no more than 300 words that speak to the workshop theme in the broadest sense.

Possible areas for discussion include:

* Activism
* Affect
* Citizenship
* Conflict and post-conflict reconstruction
* Development
* Disasters
* Ethics
* Group psychology
* Identity politics
* Public health
* Political theory/philosophy
* Radical Democracy
* Revolutionary politics
* Social Movements
* Socio-ecological systems
* Transformative communities
* Urban Infrastructure

Please send paper abstracts by June 20th to: nicholas.michelsen@kcl.ac.uk

CITIZENSHIP, ORIENTALISM AND THE COMMONS

 

Dear All

OECUMENE PROJECT and TEATRO VALLE OCCUPATO would like to make you aware of a 4-Day Seminar Event to be held at Teatro Valle in Rome:
CITIZENSHIP, ORIENTALISM AND THE COMMONS
25th – 28th September 2013

The event takes theatre to be a laboratory for the performances of critical political imaginaries on citizenship. Its conceptual core is a dialogue and translation between art, politics, and economics with a critical reflection on acts and practices of public engagement, common property, debt, and co-work. Bringing together scholars, artists and activists the event explores participatory forms of knowledge production, livelihood, civic action and resistance in and outside Europe through collective rehearsals, discussions and staged film performances. The Teatro Valle Occupato becomes our stage in which such political, ethical and aesthetic experiments are tested and played out.

Main speakers (there will be short commentaries and plenty of discussion time):

COSTAS DOUZINAS, DAVID HARVEY, and ENGIN ISIN.

The event is free and open to the public.
A pdf of the programme is available here: http://www.oecumene.eu/files/oecumene/Oecumene%20Project%20-%20Teatro%20Valle%20-%20ENG.pdf

Edward Said

DEORIENTALIZING CITIZENSHIP?

We are delighted to announce that registration is open for the Second Symposium: Deorientalizing citizenship? Experiments in political subjectivity

12-13 November 2012

Goodenough College, London

 

Keynote lectures by

– Walter Mignolo (Duke University) Citizenship, Knowledge and the Limits of Humanity (II)

– Saba Mahmood (University of California, Berkeley) Religious Liberty, the Minority Problem and Geopolitics

 

You can find the preliminary programme via: http://www.oecumene.eu/files/oecumene/2ndSymposiumProgramme.pdf

To book the event (£30 for 2 days) and for further details, please follow:  http://www.oecumene.eu/events/2nd-symposium

 

Thinking about ‘citizenship after orientalism’ involves addressing two theoretical issues. Firstly, what do we understand by orientalism thirty years after Edward Said’s seminal investigation? How can orientalism be re-articulated beyond its cultural or representational forms? Secondly, what do we mean by citizenship as a possible mode of political subjectivity? Is any articulation of political subjectivity which enacts a claim to rights, or to the right to claim rights, to be understood as citizenship? Keynote speakers Saba Mahmood and Walter Mignolo together with a selection of panelists will address these questions from multi-disciplinary perspectives.

– Panel 1 ‘Orientalism, colonialism and citizenship’: Sukanya Banerjee (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), Jack Harrington (The Open University), Alessandra Marino (The Open University), Meyda Yeğenoğlu (Istanbul Bilgi Üniversitesi)

– Panel 2 ‘Democratizing politics, decolonizing citizenship’: Bela Bhatia (Tata Institute of Social Sciences), Oscar Guardiola-Rivera (Birkbeck, University of London), Charles Hirschkind (University of California, Berkeley), Sasha Roseneil (Birkbeck, University of London)

– Panel 3 ‘The universal after orientalism’: Gurminder Bhambra (University of Warwick), Sudeep Dasgupta (University of Amsterdam), Antke Engel (Institute for Queer Theory), Vivienne Jabri (King’s College London)

– Roundtable ‘Citizenship After Orientalism: An Unfinished Project’: Discussion of Citizenship Studies Journal special issue.http://www.tandfonline.com.libezproxy.open.ac.uk/toc/ccst20/16/5-6 (free access to selected journal articles for participants of the Symposium will be provided prior to the event)

 

The Symposium is organised by the European Research Council funded project Oecumene: Citizenship after orientalism based at The Open University. To receive up-dates regarding the symposium and other project activities, please register via www.oecumene.eu/user/register

If you have any further queries please feel free to contact the project team on Oecumene-Project@open.ac.uk.

Protest Against Austerity

MOVEMENTS, NETWORKS, PROTESTS: NEW AGENDAS FOR SOCIETY AND POLITICS

The Department of European and International Studies at King’s College London is pleased to announce a call for papers for their third annual postgraduate conference: 

Movements, networks, protests: new agendas for society and politics

From the Arab Spring to Occupy, environmentalists and feminists, immigrants and students, the importance of social movements, protests, revolutions and riots in today’s world is undeniable. They have raised core questions regarding democracy, power, equality and the relationship between citizens, the state and the global economy, whilst social movement studies have expanded in academia, providing fruitful theoretical and analytical perspectives for the study of social networks, opportunity structures, collective identities, globalisation and transnationalism. 

Our conference will explore the importance of movements for social relations, political policymaking and academic research. Empirical studies as well as critical theoretical papers are welcomed on topics including, but not limited to: 

–  Protest repertoires, means and tools: contemporary social movements between peaceful “acampadas”, riots and revolutions 

–  Citizenship from below? Approaches to democracy and participation beyond the state 

–  Insiders and outsiders: the representation, rights and recognition of immigrants and minorities 

–  Explaining the success or failure of social protest 

–  Social, economic and political relations from the global to the local 

–  The impact of the internet and social networks on political participation 

–  The aesthetics of protest 

–  Leaders or followers? Hierarchies and power relations 

–  Transnational networks and movements beyond borders 

We encourage postgraduate researchers from across the social sciences and humanities to apply in order to establish an open and critical space for analysis and discussion. Presentations will be of 20 minutes with discussion and debate from the audience. 

Date: 8th June 2012 

Venue: King’s College London, Strand Campus 

Abstracts of 250 words, with name, contact details and institutional affiliation should be sent to Julia at  Julia.feilen@kcl.ac.uk  before the 22nd of April 2012. Speakers will be contacted subsequently.
