Keynote: Ariella Azoulay, “Revolutionary Moments and State Violence”

Ariella Azoulay is an Assistant Professor of comparative literature and modern culture and media in Brown University. She will present her talk on Saturday, April 27, 2013, 6:15pm.



Abstract:

A few years ago, when I began my research on the revolutions of the 18th century, I was guided by the intuition that revolution is a special type of language, and created an archive of its different manifestations. This intuition was initially based on my reading of texts and pamphlets written by protestors deprived of civil rights – mainly women and blacks, alongside images from the same context. The archive became a laboratory for further exploration of this intuition. I started by identifying statements, forms, body gestures, grammar and rules, and re-conceptualizing some of the notions related to the discourse of revolution. Through a reading of a few photos, I’ll historicize the link between revolution and violence, and question its unavoidability.
