Forskningsseminarium med Linda Åhäll

Linda Åhäll

Dr Linda Åhäll.

Välkommen till en öppen föresläsning med titeln: Embodied, affective, militarising movement as choreography of war. Föreläsare är dr. Linda Åhäll, Lecturer in International Relations vid Keele University. 

  • How do stories of past wars influence everyday life?
  • How are we made to feel about stories of war?
  • And how are feelings about war political?

This talk draws on two examples from the UK where military moves disrupt civilian spaces in the everyday: an arts project commemorating the Battle of the Somme, and a football game taking place during Remembrance week. It argues that by paying attention to the intersecting political sphere of bodies, affect and movement – through the metaphor of ‘dance’ – we are not only able to understand how security operates as a logic reproducing the militarisation of the everyday, but also able to identify a representational gap, an aesthetic politics, potentially useful for resistance to such practices normalising war in the everyday.

Varmt välkomna, ingen föranmälan behövs.
