Special Issue on Surveillance and Security Edited by Sahana Ghosh

Sahana Ghosh edited a special section “Living through Surveillance” in the latest issue of Comparative Studies of South Asia, Africa and the Middle East (Dec 2019). Ghosh writes in the Introduction:

“This collection argues that the everyday life of security and surveillance is a particularly important vantage point from which to grasp the dynamics of civil-military relations and the scalar construction of places, regions, and security ventures as coeval projects. What are the differences and relations between multiple state security agencies and their local, regional, and transnational connections? How do regional geopolitics as well as the insertion of certain regions into “global” master narratives of war and terror shape how accounts of securitized life are framed and narrated? How can such analyses challenge the tendency of area studies once again only providing context but never theory?”

Sahana Ghosh is a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies, Harvard University.
