Abstract

In this paper, I shall make the following propositions: In order to conceptually capture and represent acts of political protest in a state of exception, we will need to reorient and supplement our representational apparatuses and also our theoretical frameworks for thinking about the gendered modes of protest under emergency laws and political abandonment. Through an analysis of the ‘naked protest’ of the Meira Peibis in Manipur, a ‘state of exception’ in democratic India, I shall argue for a series of supplementations to our current thinking on intersectionality, bare life and political subjectivation, if we are to make sense of political acts of resistance, refusal and disavowal of the law of exception.
