Tanqeed joins forces with Cambridge Critical Theory and Practice to bring you a series of talks and conversations on radical theory and how they bear on political practice.
In this talk, Professor Laleh Khalili speaks on war-making and capital accumulation in the making of the transport infrastructures of the Arabian Peninsula.
Professor Laleh Khalili is a professor of Middle East politics at SOAS, University of London and the author of Heroes and Martyrs of Palestine: The Politics of National Commemoration (Cambridge 2007) and Time in the Shadows: Confinement in Counterinsurgencies (Stanford 2013). She is currently working on a project about logistics, maritime transport infrastructures, and ports of the Arabian Peninsula.
Cambridge Critical Theory and Practice is an initiative run by a collective of political organizer-activists and scholars in and around Cambridge in the United Kingdom who want to bring radical theory into conversation with political practice.
