This presentation will be about sediment and humanitarian violence. It will examine the response of the Bangladesh government to the influx of 600,000 Rohingya refugees from Myanmar in 2017. Mobilising suspension as analytical method, it will argue that Bangladesh’s response has enlisted or ‘weaponised’ sediment, to both offer and undercut hospitality to the Rohingya, un-grounding them and heightening their political and material precariousness.
