  “I wish to apologize for shattering the stereotype of the miserable migrant  with our mobile    phones and clean clothes”         From a poem by Jazra Khalid, Gayath Said: الحرب  the War is Coming


Encounters between hosts and strangers are at the core of some of our oldest surviving narratives through time. The actions and decisions taken over the threshold, whether in welcome or repulsion, serve to position society within a moral framework, and simultaneously re/define the framework itself. Asylum appeals, by their nature, constitute the ‘host’ through pointing to the existence of bodies positioned external to it. Yet, the negotiations for refuge also expose the ambiguity of who the host is. In this course we will seek to understand how value is drawn from persons, whose condition is reduced to being bodies out of place. That is whose physical position means removal from – a place of rights, protection and belonging – whether through expulsion or by being relegated to spaces of constrained mobility – asylum seekers, refugees, exiles, captives and those without effective citizenship. We will draw on ancient and modern and imaginary liminal settings to investigate the unique role of people in such states for articulating intra-community relations and the space between civil rights and human rights. Individuals and groups in such positions of liminality – whose state is considered one of exception and characterised by precarity, unsettledness and threat of violence have a significant role in articulating the parameters of the non-exceptional – the so called ‘norm’.  Here the perplexities of sovereignty are revealed, not only for the host, but for those – citizen-strangers, the stateless or people with non-effective citizenship – whose existence lies seemingly beyond the possibilities of sovereign action, and yet there is the power to invoke it.   The course brings together a dynamic group of students and international experts to discuss urgent issues of our time. Aside from discussions about select readings (not all those listed in each session), it will include ‘meet the author’ sessions (and possibly a joint effort to coordinate hosting the guest), a trip to Friedland Museum Transit Camp, and will engage with the International Lecture series Migration and Displacement – Histories, Stories and Myths, which will be coordinated with ROUTES: Migration, Mobility, Displacement, the UK Based Network at the University of Exeter. In addition students will get extra credit by attending as audience members an International Global LAB student virtual conference at Princeton.
