Mutations of the Australian camp
Abstract:This essay argues that the camp manifests and mutates the forced exclusion, separation and removal of certain segments of the population from the space of the nation. The camp is a permanent 'exceptional' colonial and neocolonial territorial arrangement that reproduces a white diasporic form of sovereignty that coexists with new configurations of exception.
