Political Forms Reading Group: Necropolitics, Biopolitics, and Sovereingty

Monday 25 October 2021, 5.00PM to 6.00 PM

Following the relaunch of the Political Forms reading group in August, we would like to invite you to our first meeting of the new term which will take place on Monday 25th October from 17:00 to 18:00 BST. We will discuss two chapters from Achille Mbembe’s book Necropolitics, translated in 2019 by Steven Corcoran: Chapter Three, ‘Necropolitics’, and Chapter Four, ‘Viscerality’. We will consider Mbembe’s approach to sovereignty and biopolitics in relation to our current political context, and the ways ‘necropolitical’ power resonates with or challenges concepts we have discussed in our previous meetings. 

The group is co-organised by Wiktoria Tunska ( and Rebecca Bevington (; for more information and access to these readings please do get in contact.
