Archival Constellations, Narrative Violations
The third chapter considers the ambivalent role of the law in the geography of colonial biopolitics by examining three of Caryl Phillips’s novels. It addresses the relationship between Phillips’ self-reflexive historiography and the conditions of precarity they depict, underscoring the continuity between the biopolitical institution and instrument of the colonial modernity in the contemporary forms of human bio-cargo that arise in its wake.
