CRC Lecture Series: Resource frontiers, or: the painful birth of territory in the margins of the state by Prof. Benedikt Korf

Vortragsveranstaltung

Resource frontiers witness rapid, dramatic, violent alterations in their landscape - enclosure, dispossession, resettlement, exclusion, evictions, displacements. The landscape is radically altered - not only in terms of property relations but also in its materiality: tropical rainforests are transformed into palm oil plantation, jungle into irrigation schemes, rangeland into land plots. Frontiers are sites at the margins of the state where the birth of territory is in the making - and this birth is often painful. In this talk, I explore a variety of resource frontiers in Africa and Asia, first, to understand empirically the territorial form of violence and dis/order in resource frontiers across the world, and, second, to theorize the frontier - using the conceptual resources of Carl Schmidt, Achille Mbembe, Peter Sloterdijk and Ana Tsing - as the painful birth of territory in the often brutal, painfull, struggles over land in the margins of postcolonial states.
