A talk by Linda Quiquivix
Quiquivix will speak on her work which seeks to investigate how colonialism's notions of what constitutes "the political" are produced and naturalized in both thought and practice by the colonized themselves. Examining the role of cartography in this question and the Palestinian struggle as a case study, she traces the life of the map in Palestine from the colonial period to the present to show how the Palestinian movement's uncritical and ubiquitous adoption of cartography today often reproduces and continues to naturalize colonial social relations of domination and submission, although this time, between and among Palestinians themselves.
