Hindu nationalist violence and subterranean agency in Ahmedabad
Shrey Kapoor

Hindu Right’s riot violence and attending transformations of Ahmedabad’s morphology have functioned as spatiotemporally isolated background conditions to the Riverfront’s violence of dispossession. Although many of the same groups that were entangled in the 2002 pogrom subsequently became subjects of dispossession, scholars have yet to examine how these forms of violence and the

A New Spatiotemporal Logic in James Baldwin’s The Evidence of Things Not Seen
Özge Özbek Akıman

This article examines James Baldwin’s late text The Evidence of Things Not Seen (1985) as one of his substantial attempts at “forging a new language,” which he tentatively mentions in his late essays and interviews. As an unpopular and difficult text in Baldwin’s oeuvre, Evidence carries the imprint of a new economy of time, casting the past into the present, and a new economy of space, navigating across other geographies in appraising the serial killings of children in one of Atlanta’s poorest Black neighborhoods. This article suggests that a new economy of time emerges earlier in No Name in the Street (1972), as a result of Baldwin’s self-imposed exile in Europe. The article then analyzes his spatiotemporal logic in the specifics of Evidence with reference to a Black middle class, urbanization, the ghetto, gentrification, and other colonized spaces.

James Baldwin Review
Jens Eder

Film viewers responses to characters are of a great variety; global notions of ‘identification’, ‘empathy’, or ‘parasocial interaction’ are too reductive to capture their rich nuances. This paper contributes to current theoretical accounts by clarifying the intuitive notion of ‘being close’ to characters, drawing on social and cognitive psychology. Several kinds of closeness are distinguished: spatiotemporal proximity, understanding and perspective-taking, familiarity and similarity, PSI, and affective closeness. These ways of being close to characters interact in probabilistic ways, forming a system. Understanding its patterns might help us to more precisely analyze the varieties of character engagement, which is demonstrated by an analysis of David Fincher‘s Fight Club (1999).

The identification of an American First World War MIA
Jay E. Silverstein

In 2004, the remains of two First World War US soldiers from France were delivered to the US Government for identification and burial. One set of remains was identified and buried, and the other went into a cold-case status. In 2019, the second individual was identified using multiple lines of evidence. The possible individuals that could be associated with the remains were reduced based on material evidence recovered with the remains and the spatiotemporal historical context of the remains. The First World War personnel records then offered sufficient biometric criteria to narrow the possible individuals associated with the second recovered individual to one person, Pfc. Charles McAllister. A family reference DNA sample from a direct matrilineal descendant of the individual added statistical weight to the identification, although the mtDNA was not a decisive or necessary factor in the identification. Due to bureaucratic reasons, the legal identification of Pfc. Charles McAllister is still pending.

Human Remains and Violence: An Interdisciplinary Journal
Spatiotemporal patterns in the riots in Belfast and Jerusalem during the era of the British Empire

how it is used. Over time, a specific set of violent practices evolves that is shaped in accordance with the particular spatiotemporal features of a city. The idea that urban space and time shape practices of violence and that those in turn rearrange the spatial and temporal configuration of a city is the main hypothesis of this book. Concerning urban space, a similar claim has

policed. Accordingly, these opportunistic, personal, everyday rhythms have been replaced with a variety of other cadences. These spatio-temporal stories of competing rhythms describe the contemporary city and highlight how it moves at different speeds, in different directions and on multiple levels. Despite attempts to fix space and provide particular narratives, there is always the potential for these to be undermined, challenged and rethought. Indeed, Manchester in its gloriously ambiguous state remains open to be made and remade as multiple time frames and rhythms

. As we have already highlighted, violence is something intrinsic to the urban and its spatiotemporal qualities, which enable and shape violence. The messiness of cities, however, does not necessarily result in physical violence. Present-day urbanism may involve selective feelings of fear and insecurity for many, yet privilege for others. This volume mainly focuses on spatiotemporal practices of urban

Anti- port protests in the city of Buenaventura

reveal the productive spatiotemporal effects of physical violence on urban rhythms. Through rhythmanalysis, I analyse frictions between infrastructural nodes of acceleration, inhabitants’ mobility and urban space. Empirically, I ask how both the growth in container turnover, and spatial and temporal, recurring practices of violence have transformed Buenaventura, one of Colombia

, 7 similarly to the experience expressed in the poem by Kang Yihong quoted earlier. In one of the paintings on the wall surrounding NBW's compound, in rough-edged red-on-white strokes we can see the city at the bottom, the village at the top and the group of migrant workers (women, men and children) in between (see Figure 6.1 ). The spatio-temporal aspects of the experience of migrant workers’ situation of ‘fluidity’ and ‘temporality’, embedded in the notion of ‘transient population’ ( liudong renkou ), is also represented here

violence and address the impact of these mnemonic spaces on everyday social practices. The systematic mapping of Beirut’s violence in space-time would require a project including archival research and recording reminiscences (oral history). This chapter can only be a trigger, as it builds on the notion of the palimpsest as an investigative tool to reveal the spatiotemporal
