What is it about?
We propose that contemporary militarization be understood as part of the continued legacy and consequence of colonial practices and (neo-)imperial logics. Lampedusa and Lebanon both serve as case studies of militarization within and beyond the fluid contours of today’s Global South. The future of these sites and their populaces are open-ended, and how individuals and collectives will remember and represent them remains, in many ways, contingent on current events.
