Discussion with Lawrence Taylor
This talk explores the practice of moral geography and the political uses of death, we began with two widely publicized incidents: the death of fourteen migrants attempting to cross the desert in Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge, Pima, Arizona in 2001 and the shooting death of a park ranger in the nearby Organ Pipe National Monument, Ajo, Arizona in 2002. Taken up respectively by pro and anti immigration groups, these two death events were used by moral entrepreneurs in the continuing struggle to define the nature of the borderland desert landscape and the people who cross it. The talk examines that struggle as an element in whatI am calling moral geography: the process where by groups and individuals use landscapes todefine good and evil, sacred and profane, and national and individual identity.
