Abstract:Petro-Sexual Politics: Global Oil, Legitimate Violence, and Transnational Justice argues that the frameworks of global politics depend upon simultaneous moments of gender violence. Petro-Sexual Politics explores how historical specificities of U.S.-Nigerian relations inform larger global discourses and practices of security and rights. By bringing Nigerian-U.K. colonial administration documents, U.S. foreign policies and speech acts, African novels and poetry, international court cases, non-governmental organization reports, protest activity and academic texts into one diverse archive, I examine security discourses that focus on petro-terrorism and domestic violence. Through intersectional and interdisciplinary methods, including the literary approach of textual interdiction, I juxtapose different sites of violence to rupture the everyday practice and logic of international security and international law. These juxtapositions expose how seemingly separate sites of violence have been co-constituted through discourses of security. In particular, I argue that the relations of petroleum production and political asylum are effects of embedded colonial scripts that perpetuate global inequalities by criminalizing and regulating bodies through the configurations of legitimate global citizenship. Illustrating how the global production of oil fuels sexual violence at systemic levels, I argue that the possibilities for social justice within the law are limited within current academic, activist, and state policy frameworks. Petro-Sexual Politics provides new modes of theorizing global politics, moving away from the assumption that the nation-state can or should determine the possibilities of justice.
