Reconfiguring the Political (from) Beyond the West

In this paper, Bunnell examines one such post-developmental zone. The Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) – and especially the ‘intelligent city’ (Cyberjaya) which is at the centre of this high-tech territory – is examined as a zone in which a specific mix of governmental agencies and spatial strategies is oriented to the shaping of would-be ‘intelligent’ global citizens. The super-privileged MSC zone exemplifies broader processes of governmental fragmentation and reterritorialization beyond the mostly Western contexts where governmentality studies have proliferated to date. Publication: 4th International Malaysian Studies Conference; 3-5 August 2004, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi.  Author: Bunnell, Tim.
