Jason Cons is assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin.
A distinctive and imaginative account of the peculiar and often mystified enclaves or 'fragmented territories' on the border between India and Bangladesh. . . . Cons offers a rich and nuanced ethnography of multiple dimensions of everyday struggles, contestations, and opportunities in Dahagram. . . . Sensitive Space opens new conceptual avenues for analyses on the Indo-Bangladeshi border as well as border studies more generally.-- Prithvi Hirani * Antipode: A Radical Journal of Geography *
Cons . . . allows his rich ethnographic material to reveal the complexities of postcolonial sovereignty, insecurity, and precarity. The result is a highly readable, theoretically acute, and sharply insightful work.-- Sankaran Krishna * Journal of Asian Studies *
