Regulation of Violence

Regulation of Violence: On the Body, Otherness and the Crisis of (Human) Capital, Lina Dokuzović (2009)

A violent imposition of divide and conquer ideology is used to maintain a normalized status inside of the invisible borders that the “other” is forced to protect. The body, therefore, replaces the border of this very regulation. The body receives direct and displaced violence, and through the continuous regulation of racial and gender stereotypes and divisions, it more visibly marks this pathological social dichotomy and acts as a landscape for global violence with the role as a de-territorialized colony of the empire.
