1990-2010, Date, History/Theory, Theory

From the author: “In this essay, I focus on seemingly benign and innocuous civil sites, spaces and technologies — such as hotel rooms, demountables and shipping containers — and proceed to argue that, once these civil sites and techologies are situated within the geopolitical relations of biopower, they become instrumental in the production of refugee trauma and death.”
