雙語課程

這門課探討21世紀的殖民性以及資本主義之間的關聯。

關於殖民性,我們並不是指19世紀到20世紀帝國擴張而造成的殖民地治理模式,而是指帶有殖民性的不平等權力結構,以及這種權力結構如何透過認識論、論述、教育、機構、法律而滲透於社會的各個層面,甚至造成了內部殖民的狀態。

內部殖民,是指國家中一部分的人佔據了權力集中的位置,分配資源,另一部分的人民卻無法自主而平等地參與社會。內部殖民發生於前殖民時期,也發生於後殖民時期,這些都是值得追問的問題。這門課的問題起點是,為何宣稱主權屬於全體人民以及法律之前人人平等的現代國家,卻時常出現透過體制性操作,而造成內部邊界分化與排除的不平等公民。這門課的第二個問題,則是21世紀資本主義如何成就了權力集中而享有法律優勢的新階級。

哈伯馬斯(Jürgen Habermas)曾經指出,資本主義現代化的過程中,功能理性高度發展,過度依賴經濟制度以及國家管理,以致於機構化與自動化的官僚系統反轉過來,使生命世界邊緣化,也使得人在社會中被系統性地物化與片面化,失去了自主的能力。哈伯馬斯以系統性「內部殖民」(internal colonization)來描述這個現象。然而,系統性的內部殖民不僅發生於機構化與自動化的官僚治理,或是人在系統中被物化與片面化,而更會發生於法律制度下被合理化的不平等公民,以及以非人的方式對待非公民。21世紀快速發展的科技技術與資本集中,導致大量移動人口以及身分的移動,更加速了各地社會內部殖民的現象。

面對21世紀的殖民性,我們要如何思考解殖方案?

這門課將帶領學生一起思考以下幾個關鍵問題:
1. 何謂殖民性?為什麼在21世紀的當代社會中,我們仍舊看到具有壓迫性的殖民結構?我們要如何改變這種內部殖民的狀態?
2. 壓迫性邊界政治的劃分線與治理模式:無分之分、種族主義、公民政治、無國籍者
3. 邊界政治的資本操作:勞力剝削、物流部署與基礎建設、平台壟斷
4. 解殖方案:認識論解殖、空間解殖、教育解殖、藝術解殖

我歡迎學生帶著自己的研究計畫加入這門課,一起閱讀代表性的理論著作與案例;我也鼓勵學生進行各種解殖方案的實驗,包括思想性的理論推展與歷史分析、行動式的空間解殖、藝術形式的創作解殖、以及教育課綱的解殖。這些實驗將可以累積為各位的期末報告或是論文計畫。

這門課也將會是協助同學們銜接2023年8月份本校ICCS主辦國際文化研究協會(Association for Cultural Studies)夏日學校活動 De-Colonization in the 21st Century的橋樑:https://acsi2023.web.nycu.edu.tw/

備注:我將會在二月初完成課程設計,將規劃好的進度表上傳。請預備修課的同學個別寫信給我,說明你們自己的研究興趣或研究計畫,對於什麼關鍵問題、思想家或是個案感興趣,我會儘量納入每週進度表。

This course aims to study the intersections between coloniality and the operation of capitalism.

Coloniality is not just a question of military occupation and political domination during a specific historical period but the oppressive system that separates one part of the population, depriving them of their autonomy and equality in the same society. Jürgen Habermas once criticized the overdeveloped rationalization and bureaucratic administration in the 20th century. He suggested that the implementation of institutional subsystems and bureaucratic controls augmented the internal expropriations and conflicts to the extent that some parts of the people in the same society were exploited, excluded, and could not enjoy equal opportunities to actualize their capacities.

For us, internal colonization happened in the pre-colonial era as well as the post-colonial era. We want to focus on why, in the 21st century, we have witnessed the augmentation of internal colonization and how the hierarchy of power relations is imposed upon local societies through political, economic, and cultural infrastructures, depriving people of equal and autonomous participation in the same community.

The core issues for this course are the following questions:
1. What is coloniality? Why do we still witness the oppressive colonial power relation in contemporary societies in the 21st century? How do we alter the state of internal coloniality?
2. The nature of oppressive colonial governmentality, the line of separation, and the mode of governing: border politics, the part-of-no-part, state racism, citizenship politics, statelessness
3. The operation of capital: labor extraction, logistics, infrastructure, transnational platformization
4. Project of decolonization: Epistemic decolonization, decolonization of the space, curricular decolonization, artistic decolonization.

I welcome students to join this class with their projects, reading and discussing representative theoretical texts and case studies. I also encourage students to experiment with various forms of decolonization, including thought decolonization, artistic decolonization, and curricular decolonization.  These lines of thought can lead you to your term paper or your thesis project.

This course will also assist students in connecting the ACS Institute 2023 organized by ICCS-NYCU: De-Colonization in the 21st Century:https://acsi2023.web.nycu.edu.tw/.

NB. I'll finalize my syllabus by the end of January. If you plan to take this course, please write to me and let me know your research interest and problematics, indicating what key concepts, thinkers, or cases you would like to work on, and I'll incorporate your concerns into my syllabus.
