Topological Atlas Seminar Session / In the Eye of the Border
The speakers bring attention to and discuss the complex web of visual, surveillance, cognitive, legal and violent practices and discourses that support surveillance and capture of certain subjects and bodies. They explore the multiple ways in which the border sees us, and the technological, political, juridical techniques used to define the scale and size of a border.

Focusing on the Aegean Sea and US/Mexico border, in this seminar we will discuss: How do sophisticated forms of monitoring and controlling give distinctive materiality to the sea and reconfigure it as a political space? How can we transition away from thinking about the border as a material or legal entity towards considering it as an active, embodied site of data accumulation or, to put it another way, how does the border see us? How are virtual border walls erected in military research and border games?
