thank you for this unpacking of the positionality of the victim of genocide, disability ( issue for vietnam world invented ptsd era): the destruction of the otto dix painting is a greatly symbolic effort of the state to render this invisible, most appreciated
Virginia Moreira
It is great to hear you and see you again here after so many years Chris!
Acikosoz, you talked about Sacrifice and masculinity. Is there physiopsychological to sacrifice? Political manipulation should use it to transform military men in subjects?
Tricia Robredo

Thank you for this presentation, Can. You pull in so many intellectual and interpretive strands in your book. I was wondering if you could describe the progression of your thinking with regard to drawing in different interpretive frames, such as Agamben, but also indigenous and religious notions of sacrificial action, and then transnational terms such as “abeslist.” Are there indigenous terms rooted in Islam or Turkish that you can draw in to talk about disability and the compassion or lack of compassion directed at those who are missing limbs.

Can, thank you so much for your wonderful presentation. I had the chance to read the book this week and to discuss it in one of Byron’s class. It was striking how many similarities I found with my own work on military villages in Taiwan, particularly on the ambiguous role of these veterans in Taiwanese politics and their complicated relationship with the state over the years. Sorry, I need to leave, but I hope we can continue this conversation!
Amy Moran Thomas
