Amani Aburahma

Tuesday 7 July 2020

Dr. Amani Aburahma deconstructs Achille Mbembe’s notion of necropolitics in relation to Michel Foucault and his concept of biopolitics. She also looks at contemporary forms of necro power, making reference to the racial violence threatening black lives in the United States, targeting the Other in Europe- with the rise of the far-right, and structuring the everyday of Palestinians living under the racist Israeli occupation, moving finally onto a discussion of the necropolitics of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
