Example text

This part of the world is constituted by states of deformation and lack whose sovereignty appears both “distant and often more or less dubious” (Nancy 1993: 30). : 29–30). The geopolitical order of sovereign states and lesser realms is not remote or irrelevant for Ramesh. Rather, it is experienced at the most immediate level of subjectivity. The geopolitical imaginary produces in Ramesh a disjunction between the I that sees and the I that is seen, between the eye that views the “world-as-a-picture” and the I that is caught in the toils of a constricting local geography.

If we all vacate our home, we will lose our income altogether. We cannot return to refugee camps because my mother is too ill. I feel like a prisoner. But I have to make up my mind … I don’t know what to think or do … I hate myself for having been born in this part of the world. Ramesh’s narrative shocked me when, from its mapping of a local and intimate geography of the war in the north—a village in Jaffna, the government base at Palaly, the refugee camps in the Vanni, the LTTE territory behind the lines—the final sentence makes a sudden leap.

However, notwithstanding the fact that the state is but one among many structures of authority, the question of state relevance and power continues to be an important question, since the state still has enormous force on the lives and imaginations of populations living within and outside them, and many international relations and organizations continue to structure themselves around state-centrality. This may be because Agamben himself refers to Guantánamo Bay inmates, asylum seekers and refugees in his discussions of contemporary forms of bare life.
