‘Partition and Independence in Heterogeneous Time’

 その後残念ながら、Partha Chatterjee 先生が、所長を務める研究所の「外部評価」と重なるということで来日が不可能になりました。また、東文研の事情で会場の変更が必要になりました。下記のようにプログラムを組み直し、場所を変更して開催したいと思います。日時には変更がありません。皆さま奮ってご参加ください。

In conceptualizing our theme, we draw your attention to what Partha Chatterjee has, in his recent work on The Politics of the Governed, characterized as the antinomy between a ‘homogeneous national’ and a ‘heterogeneous social’ (p.36). Amplifying Michel Foucault’s concept of ‘govermentality’, he develops a theoretical scheme built on an opposition between the ‘lofty political imaginary of popular sovereignty’ which give rise to the ‘homogeneous national’, on the one hand, and the effects of ‘mundane administrative reality’ and ‘governmentality’ giving rise, on the other, to the ‘heterogeneous social’ (Foucault’s ‘population’). In this workshop we will revisit claims of the ‘homogeneous national’, and consider more closely the production of the ‘heterogeneous social’ as a consequence of multiple negotiations and manifold adaptations in uncounted places. Our focus is on the disputed criteria of ‘citizenship’ and of acceptable ‘community’ (which includes national, regional, religious and other social groups), and on the contest over these as it is played out in diverse local arenas, all of which are likely to have been shot through at this juncture with powerfully articulated ideas of the ‘national’.
