Penelope Deutscher’s lecture considers the role played by time in modern analyses of differentially disposable life: its complex priors, presents, and futures. She explores a related preference for understanding political violence not just at the level of the catastrophic, sudden, and spectacular, but as enfolded in the everyday of ordinary life.Her analysis then probes how such claims can reconfigure the modern understanding of the sexual contract.
