‘How not to think like a state: non-exclusion as the basis of political community’ – An MMB PGR workshop with Nandita Sharma

Tuesday 12 July at 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Ten places are available for this exclusive workshop with activist scholar Professor Nandita Sharma, hosted by MMB during her Bristol Benjamin Meaker Distinguished Visiting Professorship. Postgraduates at all stages of their PhD are invited to explore and debate ways of thinking outside the nation state with Nandita, whose work addresses the production of categories of Native and Migrant, the national form of state power, ideologies of racism, and nationalism and autochthony. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their own research and future research plans and to think through the ethical, epistemological and political challenges and opportunities of working with and beyond state categories. Participants are also invited to dinner nearby with Nandita and the MMB team after the workshop.

Please contact MMB if you would like to attend.
