This week’s class is based on works by several authors:
Butler, Judith. 2004. Precarious Life. The Power of Mourning and Violence. New York: Verso.
Ericson, Richard. 2007. Crime in an Insecure World. Malden: Polity Press.
Larsen, Mike and Piché, Justin. 2009. “Exceptional State, Pragmatic Bureaucracy, and Indefinite Detention: The Case of the Kingston Immigration Holding Centre.” in Canadian Journal of Law and Society. 24(2) 203-229.
and Larsen, Mike. 2013. “Indefinitely Pending: Security Certificates and Permanent Temporariness”, from the forthcoming edited volume Liberating Temporariness.
I have prepared a two-sided 11×17 poster for this class. The first side provides an overview of some key points and quotes from Agamben, Butler, Ericson, and myself and Piché, as well as a short description of the Canadian security certificate regime.
The second side is a reproduction of an April 2012 article I wrote for Prism Magazine.
PDF version: CRIM 3305_Larsen
Below is a JPEG version of the first side
As always, students in CRIM 3305 – Law & Society can pick up a printed version in class.
