From JJ Mitchell ’15:
Come hear Darryl Li compare and contrast South African Apartheid and Israeli Government Policy.
Darryl Li is an anthropologist and attorney whose research is broadly concerned with the relationship between law, empire, and war in the context of encounters between people from different (non-western) regions and cultures. He has been exploring these themes through research on Arab Muslim travelers and immigrants in non-Arab Muslim societies experiencing armed conflict.
Related to his work on transnational Islamist movements is a concern with understanding evolving forms of the transnational use of violence and coercion by the U.S. national security states. He focuses on various forms of proxy detention and rendition targeting transnational Muslim populations, as well as legal rationales conflating categories of external and internal warfare under a broader logic of global civil war.
Darryl’s research has appeared most recently in Arab Studies Journal and the Columbia Human Rights Law Review. He is on the editorial committee of the Middle East Research & Information Project (MERIP). He will be giving a lecture comparing and contrasting South African Apartheid and Israeli government policy.
There will be time at the end for a few questions.
