The 2022 Culture@Large Distinguished Lecture with Neferti X. M. Tadiar

"Milieus of Capital, Ambient Splendor"

Nov 12, 2022 12:15 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

In this talk, Tadiar will draw on her recent book, Remaindered Life (Duke University Press, 2022), to argue for a new conceptual vocabulary to rethink the dynamics of global capitalism maintained through permanent imperial war. Tadiar develops the concept of being remaindered to describe the surplus life produced by those neither considered entirely expendable nor considered worthy of protection. Drawing on the everyday lives of migrants, domestic workers, and urban slum dwellers, as well as on the repertoire of artists and filmmakers who visibilize remaindered life, Tadiar's talk will significantly expand our anthropological notions of capital and place, surplus value and dispossession.

Neferti X. Tadiar is Professor of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Barnard College. She is the author of several books including, Things Fall Away: Philippine Historical Experience and the Makings of Globalization (2009), Fantasy-Production: Sexual Economies and Other Philippine Consequences for the New World Order (2004), and most recently, Remaindered Life (2022).

Culture@Large is the Society for Cultural Anthropology’s signature contribution to the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association, in which an influential scholar from outside of the discipline engages in critical discussion with anthropologists.
