The politics of autonomous space

Description :
The paper offers a further exploration of flat ontology, an account of the world that takes the immanence of localized, material process to be fundamentally different from and ontologically prior to transcendent, structured, and formal treatments of space. The A. develops the concept of the site via site ontology as an event-space that describes the differential contours and pressures of aggregating and dispersing bodies. The paper's contribution lies in considering how politics and political potentials are specified by such event-spaces. The A. argues that subjectivity is often suspended where bodies encounter or get enlisted in the unanticipated connections and relations that site ontology describes.
