Project Details

Description

Combining feminist intersectionality studies with critical border studies and decolonial perspectives that question and reconfigure ideas of material and cultural borders, the project aims to contribute to a shift from methodological nationalism to a view of society as a site for construction and challenging of different kinds of borders. The project examines everyday border struggles and collaborative knowledge production in antiracist and migrant rights activism, with a special focus on how these struggles are shaped by gender, ethnicity, race, class and age. The project investigates theoretically and empirically the emergence of ‘disobedient knowledge’ from encounters in social movements and from the incorporation of the knowledges of migrants and minorities living their lives at the border. By doing so, it aims to identify alternatives to exclusionary nationalism and the now embattled liberal multiculturalism in the public sphere.
