Resumo

Dando sequência ao trabalho de Aronis e Aoki (2021) a respeito das suásticas como tecnologias de violência, este ensaio foca especificamente nas formas contemporâneas de aplicação das suásticas em campi estadunidenses, utilizando uma perspectiva teórica da Ecologia das Mídias para expandir os horizontes a respeito do funcionamento tecnológico da suástica em prol do antissemitismo. A autora examina o material e a mídia da suástica, além de seu processo de produção, para decompor sua natureza violenta, assediadora e ameaçadora – para a comunidade judaica das universidades americanas, bem como para outras potenciais comunidades minoritárias e raciais. Através de cinco lentes de exploração tecnológica, material e comunicativa – produção, dupla marcação, bias de espaço-tempo, (re)mediação e prescrição – a autora elucida como as suásticas expostas criam um efeito traumático para universitárixs de origem judaica. Isto pode auxiliar pesquisadorxs e professorxs a respeito do tema e sua cura.
