Bringing together a diverse group of scholars from the UK, South Africa, Turkey, and the USA, this three-day conference takes as its principle focus the possibilities for and the implications of ‘dismantling security’: What are the ways in which the logic of security can be resisted, transgressed, or overturned? How can violence and force be addressed outside a security framework? How can collective life, political action and political subjectivities be conceptualized alternatively from the ways in which these categories of thought have been foreordained by the politics of security? The Conference features presentations by scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who address these questions in the sessions organized around three broad themes: conceptualizing post-imperial politics in the contemporary empire of security; unmaking the security imaginary through critical engagements; rethinking force and violence beyond security.
