Kamala Visweswaran: "Genocide/Diaspora"

With the resurgence of unresolved conflicts around the world, so-called “conflict diasporas” come to demarcate  processes of forced migration and national refugee or asylum regimes. This presentation explores  the  forms of expressive culture  and popular media that attend talk about genocide as contrastive forms of universalization and sovereignty.
Kamala Visweswaran is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and South Asian studies at the University of Texas, Austin. She is currently on a fellowship with the Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University.
