Time and space in family migrant networks between Kosovo and western Europe
Carolin Leutloff-Grandits

. Despite being physically on different sides of polity borders, and over great geographical distance, migrants often retain an active part in their local village space. This locality is thus re-created ‘translocally’ (Massey 1991). However, migrants may transgress a state border ‘trans-temporally’ as well. They not only construct a transborder locality but also a time-space with which to fill it. Family ties across borders, earlier life experiences and imagining and remembering traces of alternative time-spaces all allow migrants to contest the hegemonic spatial temporal

Crossing borders, changing times
Madeleine Hurd, Hastings Donnan and Carolin Leutloff-Grandits

– conceptualise the borders they have crossed or those recently imposed upon them? How are those who have crossed defined by ‘host’ populations; and with what new eyes do they view themselves in time and place, reworking their relationships to the times and spaces of both their ‘own’ and the ‘other side’? In order to answer these questions, we focus on borders that are embedded in specific political contexts, which we refer to throughout as ‘polity’ borders. These enclose and define areas controlled by national or supranational state authorities. They often appear as lines on a

interest in the ‘geographies of walking’ is further informed by concerns with the politico-aesthetic conditions for negotiating and resisting scopic regimes of modern state power, largely within the urban realm (Crary 1990; Jay 1993; Pinder 2011); as a tactic capable of rendering visible a historical, relational and ‘affective geopolitics’ of state sovereignty (Sidaway 2009), and as a potentially productive pathway for charting the normative valences associated with heightened ‘mobilities’ across the social sciences (Urry 2007; Cresswell and Merriman 2011).

at nationalising local subjects through the centralisation of burials. Moreover, it was a branch of its ‘biopolitics’ (Foucault 1982) as the state sought to govern the health of the population through their corpses. However, these policies were never fully acknowledged by the Duha, who regard burial beneath the ground as an inherently dirty, dangerous and thus improper activity, whereas open-air funerals are seen as the proper and clean way of treating the deceased. Burial may capture the souls (sünc) of the deceased underground and transform them into malevolent

2 Governing the dead? Theoretical approaches Finn Stepputat Following a trend of emerging interest in carnal fetishism1 and the politics of dead bodies (Verdery 1999), this volume focuses on the particular relationship between sovereignty on the one hand and (dead) bodies and human remains on the other, arguing that this analysis can help us understand fundamental ways in which sovereignty is claimed and performed. We see sovereignty as an effect of practices that are fundamentally related to the body and to issues of life and death, and pertaining to the state
