WALLED STATES, WANING SOVEREIGNTY

 

A special lecture by
Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley

Wednesday, 25 November 2009, 14:00 – 16:30
Berrill Lecture Theatre, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, dozens of walls have been erected between and within nation-states. Why? What are these walls doing–materially, performatively, symbolically? What is their relationship to the erosion of state sovereignty? What is the nature of state and popular investments in them, especially when they don’t ‘work’?

Professor Brown’s lecture will include responses from:

Professor Stuart Elden, Department of Geography, Durham University
Dr Raia Prokhovnik, Department of Politics and International Studies, Open University.

A reception will follow this event from 4.30pm onwards.

All are welcome; attendees should RSVP to Sarah Batt at a.s.c.batt@open.ac.uk
