standards of their own culture, broadening their artistic techniques and perception. The idea that distance from home, or geographical displacement, provides a better vantage point for artistic and cultural criticism than centrality and stability has been conceptualised by feminist scholars. For instance, Caren Kaplan and Janet Wolff have taken up Deleuze and Guattari’s term of ‘deterritorialisation’ to suggest that displacement (such as exile, travel, or relocation) has enabled women writers to negotiate their identity (in relation to home and their new location) in a

they attended the Royal Police Training College in Barbados. None of the four men had been born in St. Lucia and all were surprised and thrilled to meet each other at the game. They had intense conversations trying to get caught up on the goings on of the past three decades. The similarity between reunions in St. Lucia and England demonstrate the deterritorialisation of the Caribbean and the potential for diasporas to

diasporic identities and powerful discourses, signs and symbols of nationalism. Taking from the land without acknowledging indigeneity (not to mention ongoing colonialism) is well rehearsed in dominant Canadian discourses. Club members are not immune to the charms of the language, imagery and ideology of Canadian nationalism, demonstrating that deterritorialisation has destabilised identity, but it has not

Out of place with The Smiths
Nabeel Zuberi

‘I Will See You In Far-off Places’ from the album Ringleader Of The Tormentors (2006), the cod orientalist instrumentation and lyrics point to the object of Morrissey’s engagement as an Arab Muslim: ‘If your god bestows protection upon you / And if the USA doesn’t bomb you / I believe I will see you somewhere safe / Looking to the camera, messing around and pulling faces’. Certain fan sites have suggested that this is a (love) letter to Osama Bin Laden.21 The deterritorialisation of The Smiths continues apace. The video artist Phil Collins’ project el mundo no

The film challenges a world of borderlines and the oppressive weight of

To better understand the dynamic of deterritorialisation, it is necessary to turn backwards and look for the origins of discord, for the source of what David Scott Kastan calls ‘the turbulence of history’, which he presents as follows: In play after play we are forced to experience the turbulence of history. We are confronted not with order

creative intensity leads only to incoherence and blank passivity. Bolden’s rejection of subjective coherence may expose him to the pure event of becoming, but it also renders him completely vulnerable to the disciplinary violence of institutional forces. Ondaatje’s unhappy sense that the absolute deterritorialisation of subjectivity merely anticipates its violent reterritorialisation at another level resonates throughout the novel’s final pages. It finds its sharpest expression in the stylistic interplay between intensity and narration : Bolden’s beatific insistence

gendered and sexed national bodies. (Bhanji 2013 : 517) Indeed, Feinberg’s novel is specifically engaging with intersections between citizenship, movement, and gender – and their attendant deterritorialisation and reterritorialisation – that Bhanji describes. As an aside, I want to ask what Max, who has no
