This is a dialogue between Nicholas De Genova and Sandro Mezzadra, two scholars working at the edges of disciplinarity on matters of migration, capitalism, and politics. It includes questions and comments from the audience in attendance for the original public event held in London in 2015, and new questions proposed by the editors of pariss in 2020. Reflecting upon the points of departure, challenges, and turns that have marked their respective iteneraries as thinkers and activists, in and beyond academe, this article makes a timely and much needed intervention on the permutations and politics of labor, mobility, and subjectivity.
