Unresolved Geographies, Embattled Landscapes
Program #SAIE023. Recorded in Amherst, MA on September 17, 1999.
The standard imperial strategies of "divide and rule" and "partition and quit" have had disastrous consequences in Ireland, Palestine and India. The ravages of identity politics and skewed nationalist impulses have further contributed to turmoil and war. Independence for many post-colonial states has meant little more than replacing a foreign system of oppression with a local one. What are the ways to create new forms of affiliation and communal existence in order to overcome difference and resolve conflicts?
