Lecture by Dr. Suvendrini Perera and Dr. Joseph Pugliese. Organized in the frame of the Erasmus + project and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. An event in the scope of Conviviality as Potentiality: From Amnesia to Pandemic towards Convivial Epistemologies (FWF AR 679, 2021–2025).

In this lecture we present an overview of our transnational research project Deathscapes: Mapping Racial Violence in Settler Colonial Societies (2016–2020). The project maps racialised deaths in custody and technologies of state violence across several settler states – and their points of origin in the European metropolis. What is distinctive about the research is its grounding of present-day anti-refugee and anti-migrant violence in the ongoing logics of the settler-colonial state and its foundational denial of Indigenous sovereignty. 

Suvendrini Perera is John Curtin Distinguished Emeritus Professor, Curtin University, Australia.

Joseph Pugliese is Professor at the Department of Media, Communications, Creative Arts, Language and Literature, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
