Abstract:In this dissertation project I work with postcolonial theory and visual methodology to provide a critical cultural analysis of selected works by two exemplary artist activists. Selected works by Emily Jacir (Palestinian American) and Sebastiao Salgado (Brazilian French) provide the means to understand the characterizations of contemporary human geopolitical displacement that is grounded in the Palestinian experience. I seek to juxtapose the attributes of Jacir's particular (local) versus Salgado's universal (global) visual and verbal expressions of human displacement through simultaneous engagement with conditions and concepts of Palestinian displacement. The artistic representation of human displacement constructs a place to resist and challenge colonialism, not only visually and/or verbally, but also subversively through the act itself. Representation has material consequences. Specifically, Jacir's proxy performances fulfill dreams and wishes that otherwise would not be realized. Salgado's portrayal of displacement as universal provides another perspective on humanity. Whereas Salgado's work creates a unanimous image of the displaced, Jacir's work elaborates on the particularities of Palestine and Palestinians. This study argues that human displacement is increasing and the traditional refugee paradigm is outdated because it does not cover the varieties of modern human geopolitical displacements around the world. It proposes the establishment of a new field of inquiry, Human Geo-Political1 Displacement Studies (HGPDS), within the interdisciplinary grounds of critical communication scholarship from an actively critical postcolonial perspective. The proposed field of inquiry covers other lands and displaced populations around the world beyond Palestine and Palestinians, focusing on globalized conditions/concepts that are lived uniquely in local settings. Similar to Palestine and Palestinians, displaced people--in general represent particular historical-political-economic circumstances unique to their land, resources, and population that need to be acknowledged in order to approach viable solutions toward regaining a status of peoplehood rather than the humanitarian label of refugee. 1 The use of geopolitical as one word is a reference to its generic meaning, by hyphenating geopolitical I am highlighting both geography and politics as entities that can be understood in their own terms, in other words the possibility of their independence as nature has intended.
