              Sensitive Space: Fragmented Territory at the India-Bangladesh Border (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Enclaves along the India-Bangladesh border have posed conceptual and pragmatic challenges to both states since Partition in 1947. These pieces of India inside of Bangladesh, and vice versa, are spaces in which national security, belonging, and control are shown in sharp relief. T...hrough ethnographic and historical analysis, Jason Cons argues that these spaces are key locations for rethinking the production of territory in South Asia today. Sensitive Space examines the ways that these areas mark a range of anxieties over territory, land, and national survival and lead us to consider why certain places emerge as contentious, and often violent, spaces at the margins of nation and state. Offering lessons for the study of enclaves, lines of control, restricted areas, gray spaces, and other geographic anomalies, Sensitive Space develops frameworks for understanding the persistent confusions of land, community, and belonging in border zones. It further provides ways to think past the categories of sovereignty and identity to reimagine territory in South Asia and beyond.

              Limn Number 10: Chokepoints
               

              Limn Number 10: Chokepoints (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Migrants gather in jungles at the mouth of the Chunnel, awaiting an opportunity to cross from mainland Europe into the UK undetected. Somali pirates attack ships queuing up at the Bab-el-Mandeb strait, a critical passage between the Indian Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. A flash cra...sh in the stock market triggers a digital circuit breaker that instantly shuts off digital trade until cooler heads prevail. Transcontinental internet connectivity is funneled through bundles of undersea cables, making global information flow susceptible to disruption by something as minor as a misplaced ship anchor. These tunnels, corridors, and cables illustrate how some conduits can become chokepoints, sites where malfunction, blockage, or strategic pressure constricts-or chokes -the flows and connections upon which contemporary life depends. Limn 10 brings together anthropologists, geographers, photographers, media scholars, sociologists, ecologists, and historians to explore chokepoints. We ask: When and why do these sites of constriction and connection emerge? How and for whom do they work? And what do chokepoints reveal about the the past, present, and future?Featuring work by: Ashley Carse, Jason Cons, Townsend Middleton, Dredge Research Collaborative, Carwil Bjork-James, Orit Halpern, Joshua Lewis, Jatin Dua, Janell Rothenberg, Ivan Small, Gabriela Valdivia, Caroline Melly, Michael Degani, Claudio Aporta, Stephanie C.
