Why queer(y) citizenship?
Zalfa Feghali

border were not required to adhere to US and (then Great Britain) Canadian border control and customs regulations.2 It is ironic, then, that the other questions asked of the mother in ‘Borders’ include whether she is carrying ‘any firearms or tobacco’ (‘Borders’ p. 135). As it meditates on the need for recognition, rights, and representation as they are made manifest by the artifice and limits of nationhood, ‘Borders’ effectively emphasises the idea that, as Karl Hele puts it, ‘borders are lived experiences’ (xv), and ‘mere lines drawn upon the water often disrupted or

In Black Mirror style, 3 the video pictures the dangerous potential of the deployment of autonomous swarms of self-flying mini-drones equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, cameras, sensors, face recognition and explosives. The video was released by the Future of Life Institute 4 together with AI expert Stuart Russell, a professor of computer science at the University of California, Berkeley. Russell explains at the end of the video that the capabilities of autonomous weapons shown in the film are a very near-future possibility, the

to explain how the work (or the artist) engages with these effects in an aesthetic, visual and conceptual register. The Introduction presented the three interwoven concerns pursued throughout this book: visibility and recognition, identity and belonging, and aesthetics and politics. Chapter 1 outlined how intensified globalisation and mobility have profoundly changed the discourses on art. I argued that the discourse on art and globalisation has primarily revolved around issues concerning globalisation-from-above, whereas the discourse on art and migration has

The tense of citizenship
Ben Silverstein

this reason, Aileen Moreton-Robinson insists that citizenship operates as a ‘weapon of race war’. In her account, transforming Indigenous people into citizens requires that they be emptied of their ‘ways of being’, instead becoming the homogenised Indigenous subjects of a ‘racialized rights discourse’. Becoming a citizen was scripted in the Aboriginal New Deal as becoming a racialised minority; abandoning a disappearing sovereignty. 10 This was the form of recognition practised by the Aboriginal New Deal. Some 80 years before

or any other constraint. By contrast, there were considerable age and property restrictions placed on women voting in the Representation of the People Act, and negligible progress in areas of parliamentary reform over the following decades, over issues such as plural voting and the composition of the House of Lords. The Parliament (Qualification of Women) Act was a decisive early piece of gender equality legislation and deserves greater recognition as a significant achievement in the area of constitutional reform.

This is not any sort of legitimacy, which would imply a false-self compliance, but a secure internal sense of love and recognition. The characters cannot be literally nostalgic, since this primary connection is something they have not had.

As Glen Coulthard has warned, we must not submit to the ‘assimilative lure of the statist politics of recognition’.6 Recognitionbased approaches to migrant solidarity that focus on the inclusion of racialised people in and on the terms of the colonial state result in the construction of instances of state racial terror, such as the hostile environment, as aberrations rather than the norm. Such racial terror cannot be corrected through the doling out of legal

LGBT rights expansion in the Rainbow Nation (Croucher, 2011: 160). In contrast, references to international learning and the power of foreign examples have remained rare in the literature on LGBT rights politics in the more established western democracies. As this monograph has demonstrated, however, the international community’s influence on debates about LGBT rights and the legal recognition of same-sex couples in particular did not begin in the 2000s and has not been limited to the more recently established democracies that lie outside of Western Europe and North
