Citizenship and Subjecthood in Comparative Perspective: A Workshop (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Citizenship and Subjecthood in Comparative Perspective: A Workshop
Abstract: The Department of History at George Washington University is organizing a two-day workshop on citizenship and subjecthood in the Middle East, South Asia and Africa that will be held on March 2 and 3, 2017. The workshop is designed to foster conversations across areas connected by shared histories of colonial/imperial rule, migration and forms of knowledge production. The workshop is organized around three loosely defined themes: frontiers/borderlands and the making of subjects/citizens; law and the “right to have rights;” transnational/transimperial subjecthood/citizenship. There is no set statement or agenda for workshop. We have designed it around people that we thought could have a stimulating and productive discussion on the broad themes of the workshop. We will read each other’s papers (some of it work-in-progress), and hope to bring to our discussion a set of conceptual questions that inform our writing on citizenship and subjecthood. Professor Fredrick Cooper will deliver the keynote address and will participate in our discussions over the two days.
