CFP for MESA 2023 in Montreal — Frontier Effects: Borders, Peripheries, and the Territorial Limits of States and Empires in Northern Africa and Southwest Asia

What are the institutional arrangements and organizational forms of human life that create the effect of frontiers? Frontiers are paradoxically geographical zones that imaginatively and materially embody social, economic, and political liminality while otherwise generating immense levels of state and imperial anxiety. Frontiers — the frontier effect — must be produced by ideas, by bodies, by material infrastructures, and by new configurations of human and non-human relations; and yet frontiers are essential spaces of production, making livelihoods and (in)securities possible.

Re: Price on Meilinger, 'Thoughts on War'

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this review.

I was very glad to see included section about military involved in politics. One essential point, which such brief review did not note, is the rationales and historical reasons why US military turned away from involving itself, overtly, into politics. This is an area deserving more substantive presentation and shows why that divide line is and remains important to the conduct of military affairs by the US.

These short reviews cannot always do the sort of exploration some subjects deserve; this area is one of those.
