"Geographies of Law: Power, space, Border" 16th - 18th Mai 2014

The Workshop
We want to explore particular aspects of spatial power in legal and geographically oriented research and thinking. The workshop would be something of a continuation of earlier ASFPG workshops on "Law, Colonialism and Violence" but with a focus on the overlapping terrain of spatial power and legal order. It will bring together people working with interdisciplinary approaches to legal theory, politics, and social and cultural geography. One aim would be a discussion about the lack of connection between geographically-oriented thinking and legally-oriented thinking regarding what could turn out to be the same questions.

Particular topics: sovereignty, territory and jurisdiction as geolegal forms; aspects of spatial power; mobility and borders: labour and migration; colonial spaces; national and geopolitical orders; practices and technologies of violence; territorial integrity and geopolitical legality; policing the city (sea, sky, any- thing).
