In this conversation, Miriam Ticktin and I talk about the problematic characteristics of discourses and legislation that particularize figures of innocence. Suffering and sick bodies are particularly subject to this process that distinguish innocent subjects from their necessary corollary, guilty ones. Miriam unfolds for us this aspect of her work regarding migrant’s claims for humanitarian exceptions and asylum in France.

We ends this conversation with the illustrative example of ...

These tools want to play with rules, leaving players free to arbitrarily invent their own. With few indications and simple tools, we can create objectives, parallel universes ...

The Uncanny Child in Transnational Cinema illustrates how global horror film images of children reconceptualised childhood at the beginning of the twenty-first century, unravelling the child’s long entrenched binding to ideologies of growth, futurity, and progress. The book analyses an influential body of horror films featuring subversive depictions of children and proposes that complex cultural and industrial shifts at the turn of the millennium resulted in potent cinematic renegotiations of the concept of childhood. In these transnational films—largely stemming from Spain, Japan, and America—the child resists embodying growth and futurity: by demonstrating both the culturally specific and globally resonant properties ...
