Abstract

Extending the timeframe of analysis beyond the post-uprising period, Corinna Mullin and Brahim Rouabah retrace the way in which the state of emergency has functioned as a discourse of power and a modality of governance throughout the colonial and postcolonial eras. Specifically, the article focuses on how the state of emergency contributes to the reinforcement of dominant narratives about national identity, and the foreclosure of more radical alternative political, social and economic projects outside of the colonial-modern norm.
