A special collection of on-line articles on Gendering border crossings in Re-Public!
Re-Public is freely accessible online journal focusing on innovative developments in contemporary political theory and practice. This collection includes texts written by Judith Butler, Laura Agustín or a group of migrant sex workers. The guest editor of the collection, Nelly Kambouri, introduces it as follows:
“The fear, the excitement, the boredom of crossing borders are all inscribed in concrete spaces, material or not, in which masculine and feminine attributes materialize, orchestrating different passages: military invasions, migrations, vacations, illegal itineraries, professional journeys, home comings. What the articles in this special issue have in common is that they sketch the gendered ways, in which such passages are formed and transformed. Furthermore, the issue includes not only texts that focus on gender inequalities and asymmetries, but also texts that somehow point out to the possibilities alternative identities and practices of resistance produced therein.”
