Hrant Dink (1954 – 2007) was a Armenian editor, journalist and columnist. As editor-in-chief of the bilingual Turkish-Armenian newspaper Agos. Dink was a prominent member of the Armenian minority in Turkey. Dink was best known for advocating Turkish-Armenian reconciliation and human and minority rights in Turkey; he was often critical of both Turkey's denial of the Armenian Genocide, and of the Armenian diaspora's campaign for its international recognition Dink was prosecuted three times for denigrating Turkishness, while receiving numerous death threats from Turkish nationalists. Hrant Dink was assassinated in Istanbul in January 2007, by Ogün Samast, a 17-year old Turkish nationalist. This was shortly after the premiere of the genocide documentary Screamers, in which he is interviewed about Turkish denial of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 and the case against him under article 301. While Samast has since been taken into custody, photographs of the assassin flanked by smiling Turkish police and gendarmerie, posing with the killer side by side in front of the Turkish flag, have since surfaced. The photos created a scandal in Turkey, prompting a spate of investigations and the removal from office of those involved. At his funeral, two hundred thousand mourners marched in protest of the assassination, chanting "We are all Armenians" and "We are all Hrant Dink". Criticism of Article 301 became increasingly vocal after his death.

Borderlands – a theory workshop-seminar on border crossing

The workshop will be conducted by guest lecturer Ivana Marjanovic, PhD candidate at Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Border is a multiple category referring to many different conceptualizations. It can be viewed as a sight of economical management (global commerce) or biopolticial management (border controls, migration etc), a sight of regulation and control. In such context, it is argued that border is today less and less geographical linear demarcation and rather multiple entity that can be inner, outer, externalized and that can take the form of zones, regions, border lands (Étienne Balibar, Ugo Vlaisavljević). Also border is an ideological category, a site of protection of the conditions of reproduction of class, gender, “race” and other power relations producing divides. Finally, border is an unstable, contingent space of tension where the ordering field and its mechanisms are brought into question, opposed and where they can be bypassed and endangered by border-crossers and border dwellers in the spaces of the geo-political borders, in sights of struggles for knowledge and sights of political action (universities, books, lectures, exhibitions, no-border camps, protests, border-fuckers cabarets etc.)

Gloria Anzaldúa, queer theorist and writer defined border and borderlands in following way: Borders are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to distinguish us from them. A border is a dividing line, a narrow strip along a steep edge. A borderland is a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary. It is a constant state of transition. The prohibited and forbidden are its inhabitants. Los atravesados live here: the squint-eyed, the perverse, the queer, the troublesome, the mongrel, the mulato, the half-breed, the half-dead; in short, those who cross over, pass over, or go through the confines of the “normal.” (Anzaldúa, 2007 [1987]: 25).


In the Borderlands
you are the battleground
where enemies are kin to each other;
you are at home, a stranger,
the border disputes have been settled
the volley of shots have shattered the truce
you are wounded, lost in action
dead, fighting back;
To survive the Borderlands
you must live sin fronteras*
be a crossroads.

*sin fronteras – without borders
(Anzaldúa 2007 [1987]: 216-217)

The workshop will be structured around reading of sections from the book “Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza” by Gloria Anzaldúa first published in 1987. Additionally the text by E. Patrick Johnson ‘Quare’ Studies, or (Almost) Everything I Learned about Queer Studies I Learned from My Grandmother will be discussed. Students are invited to prepare the texts and guide the readings but also to propose other theoretical texts that conceptualize border as a “threshold waiting to be crossed, a space rife with the seductive aura of transgression” (Sarai Reader 2007). The proposed texts would be discussed within the workshop. Film screening as collaboration with film program by Claudia Caceres and Marisa Lobo will be part of the workshop.

Subscription will be organized on the day of the course.
