********

The three of us have recently publish books and would like to invite you
to our triple book launch titled "The Contested Politics of Security".

Our books cover a wide range of topics (Muslims' experiences of Canadian security measures, the politics of emergency shelters, and Spanish immigration policy) and yet all engage with the contested politics of security.  They ask: what is security, who are deemed to deserve it, what are the consequences of security measures, and what types of logics and practices inform them

Informal event with brief speeches, books for sale and snacks. Drop by between 4 and 5:30 pm.

Nous avons tous les trois publié un livre récemment et souhaitons vous inviter
à un triple lancement, intitulé "The Contested Politics of Security".

Nos livres touchent à des sujets divers (l'expérience de musulman.e.s de mesures sécuritaires au Canada, les dynamiques de pouvoir qui opèrent dans des refuges, et les politiques espagnoles d'immigration) mais ils ont en commun d'analyser cette notion contestée qu'est la sécurité.  Ils nous invitent à poser les questions suivantes : qu'est-ce que la sécurité, qui juge-t-on comme méritant de vivre en sécurité, quelles sont les conséquences des mesures de sécurité, et autour de quelles logiques et pratiques s'organisent-elles ?

Événement informel avec brefs discours (surtout en anglais), livres à vendre et grignotines. Passez faire un tour entre 16h et 17h30.

David Moffette, Baljit Nagra and Prashan Ranasinghe
