Abstract:

On November 9, 2019, celebrating the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, Pakistan and India inaugurated the opening of a border corridor—the Kartarpur Corridor. This article traces the political rationality that undergirds the corridor by questioning state intervention and the exception—all of which rely upon the corporate institution that is Christianity. I then examine how the corridor is said to correspond with alternative cartographies thereby removing the instability of sovereign decision. I end by considering how celebration of the corridor signals a slippage between the concepts of "limit" and "border".
