“When Does the Public Care? The Importance of Security Policy to the Public”

What mobilizes the public to demand their leaders take action in other countries experiencing conflict? I use paired public opinion surveys and elite policymaker interviews from the Republic of Georgia to explore when the public demands intervention in other countries. I show through survey evidence that the public wants intervention in external conflict cases if those cases were covered by the media and trigger feelings of group solidarity. Then using evidence from my elite interviews, I establish the public as an actor whom elites listen to in these rare, yet salient cases.

Architectural Taxidermy, Haraway’s Implosion Method & Full-Scale Drawings

5:15 pm, Monday, November 11th | WES Room, Worner Center

In 2014 anthropologist Joe Dumit published “Writing the Implosion” in which he articulates a teaching-practice developed by Donna Haraway. An implosion examines the cultural strings knotting things, stories, and places – binding, for instance, your white-cotton t-shirt with plantation agriculture and posters of James Dean. As Dumit points out, Haraway’s implosion method reveals how deeply entangled we are with a dangerous world and in so doing produces a strong feeling of discomfort. This lecture will consider what kinds of questions it becomes possible to ask when feminist cultural studies implodes the work of architecture. By examining a series of full-scale drawings, I will offer a theoretical position replacing “agency” with “comfort” as a guiding concept to make sense of the world. Following Sara Ahmed and others, we’ll consider the “room-making devices” that produce worlds more comfortable for some than others.
