This chapter focuses on the impact of globalization on human bodies as they are managed in global cities. In addition to uncovering the integration of colonial computations of the difference into the new forms of empire, it proposes a crip/topography: that is, it attempts to think “the crip” as a positionality from which to resist imperial norms.

Keywords: Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak; globalization; the crip; imperial norms; global cities
