co-sponsor; Executive Time: the Death Penalty's Appropriation of the Instant with David Wills

March 30, 2017 - 4:30pm - 6:30pm
754 Schermerhorn Ext
"Executive Time: the Death Penalty's Appropriation of the Instant"
 
The death penalty's programmed interruption of ordinary mortal time brings about, I argue, a thorough reconfiguration of human temporality. In particular, once capital punishment is separated from torture, and becomes a "punctual" operation rather than one involving duration, then it is required to manage the instant, which remains an obsessive concern for American death penalty jurisprudence even in most recent Supreme Court decisions. My paper will examine the version of instantanization that takes place with the introduction of the guillotine, in the context of the broader question of what it means to know--thanks to the state--the moment of one's death.
