The Causality, Limit-formations, and Duplicity of Sovereignty in Eastern Indonesia
Spring 2017

Dylan Fagan is a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology. His research examines expressions of sovereignty in Indonesia. In dialogue with the literature suggesting that sovereignty binds a non-coincidental, double representation of itself in the appearance of a limit, his research addresses how the work of cinema, sculpture and poetry orients a bodied, vanishing point of political life. His summer fieldwork is based in Jakarta and Kupang, Indonesia.
