Anti-Odysseus: Fugues of the Non-Homeric
For her faculty research grant, the grantee worked on a book project that explore the longstanding yet complicated relation between the nostos and the polis. The book contains a mix of narrative, art, and theory to explore a political understanding of location, space, and attachment. The book seeks ways to engage in a discussion of human rights, postcolonial subjectivity, and institutions together that is not framed by biopolitics, necropolitics, and other “pathologies” of the oppressed The CHRA faculty research grant enabled the grantee to travel, organize conversations and collaboration, and to seek technical support for the production and presentation of shared knowledges.
