Description: Drawing on ethnography and social theory, this course develops analytics attuned to the socialities, intimacies, temporalities, and forms of ethic that emerge in the precarious spaces of liberal and democratic violence and failure. In refugee camps or climate catastrophes, in a queer present or under enduring legacies, what happens if we think the social with hope and futurity in abeyance?
