Disentangling the affective meshwork of the Belize Barrier Reef
Phillip Vannini

territorialisation and de-territorialisation. Territorialisation is a movement towards internal organisation and coherence, whereas de-territorialisation refers to forces which rupture and unsettle the whole. There were clear ways, we thought, in which the inclusion of the Barrier Reef on the list of World Heritage Sites in Danger had functioned as a clear de-territorialising process by introducing instability and insecurity. At the same time, we had noticed how the numerous efforts to combat development and oil exploration could

agency. Toxic hegemonic masculinity remains unproblematised, indeed, seems to enjoy a taken-for-granted status as inevitable and normal. Assembling bodies via registers of territorialisation, deterritorialisation and reterritorialisation Part of the characteristic of the machinic assemblage is its capacity for movement and renewal. The inscriptions of the body that are part of both patriarchal violence and part of a resistance against this violence – via refusal – function to deterritorialise and

A critical and integrative literature review

mobilities occur dialectically and this dyad is required in order to, on the one hand, problematise these notions and, on the other hand, combine both the ‘sedentarist’ perspective which treats place, stability and dwelling as a natural steady state, and the narratives of deterritorialisation, fluidity and liquidity (Bauman 2000 ). Hannam, Sheller and Urry's idea of moorings ( 2006 ) is also beneficial to understand differentiated opportunities and constraints in the processes of adaptation and settling visible in the processes of anchoring (including their material

, indeed, the national trauma. Today, movement means travel or working abroad or ‘coming home’. The Irish media portray Ireland’s citizens as the ‘young Europeans’, computer literate, confident, citizens of the world. Migration, then, cannot have a simple meaning as a symptom of globalisation. It can signify expulsion or, as in Ireland today, success. The diaspora was once an integral element of Irish identity. Today, there is a move to ‘bring it home’ but home is not what it used to be. The Ireland of today has seen the full effect of the deterritorialisation of culture

). The growth of harsh new border regimes or what activist Harsha Walia ( 2013 ) calls ‘border imperialism’ has been a midwife to the birthing of these death worlds in Europe, not only in the Mediterranean but in planes, lorries and detention camps and centres across the continent. There are three simultaneous, imbricated developments in contemporary border regimes: the deterritorialisation of state sovereignty; a fortification of land

Surveillance and transgender bodies in a post-9/ 11 era of neoliberalism

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

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

The ‘European city’ as a territorialised entity
Anke Schwarz

strong instrument and feature of essentialising spatial exclusion, whether in Germany (Bürk, 2012 ) or the Ecuadorian–Colombian borderland (Zaragocin, 2018 ). Framing ‘race’ with Stuart Hall as a discursive category which emerges from its enactment in social practices (Hall, 2012 [1996] : 208), territorialising practices are one of the more obvious areas where this category operates. In this sense, deterritorialisation could be framed as a manner of denying space – that is, as referring to ways in which the appropriation and use of urban space are contested as non

They claim that the ‘deterritorialisations’ produced by drugs are ‘compensated for by the most abject reterritorialisations’, such as drug addictions and compulsions to repeat (as is the case with opiates, amphetamines, cocaine), but also with reference to Artaud and Michaux (who shared a taste for hallucinogens) they recall the ‘negative effects’ of loss of control, erroneous perceptions and ‘bad feelings’: Drug addicts continually fall back into what they wanted to escape
