The Facisization of Everyday Life in Sri Lanka

Mangalika talk pic_thumb
November 9, Monday
12:30 to 1:45 PM

Mangalika de Silva, Visiting Scholar, CSGS
Based on prior activism as director of the NGO “Women for Peace” and on current ethnographic research on the minoritization of women and Muslims, this talk explores genealogies of formal and informal state terror.  Counterinsurgency nationalism in Sri Lanka is theorized as a key component in the colonial expansion of the global “war on terror” through the proliferation of a political mythology of the “second front.”
