Specters of Sovereignty: Comments on Andrew Dilts' “Toward Abolitionist Genealogy”

Southern Journal of Philosophy 55 (S1):78-85 (2017)

This paper is a slightly expanded and altered version of comments delivered in response to a paper by Andrew Dilts at the 35th Annual Spindel Conference in Memphis, TN. I focus on the elision of the state in Dilts' paper in order to demonstrate the need for a genealogy that takes seriously the role of sovereignty in constructing the present of trans femmes and trans women of color.
