Thanasis Lagios, Vasia Lekka and Grigoris Panoutsopoulos, Borders, Bodies and Narratives of Crisis in Europe,

9783319755854.jpgThanasis Lagios, Vasia Lekka and Grigoris Panoutsopoulos, Borders, Bodies and Narratives of Crisis in Europe, now published with Palgrave Pivot.

This book addresses two interrelated discourses of crisis in contemporary Europe: the migrant crisis vs. the economic crisis. The chapters shed light on the thread that links these two issues by first examining immigration and the transformations regarding its control and administration via border technologies, as well as on the centrality of the body as a means and carrier of border within contemporary biopolitical societies. In a second step, the authors proceed  to a genealogy of the current discourses regarding the financial and political crisis through a Foucauldian and Lacanian perspective, focusing on the co-articulation of scientific knowledge and biopolitical power in Western societies.

Thanks to Marcelo Hofman for the link. A shame about the price though.
