Mobility assemblages and lines of flight in women’s narratives of forced displacement
Tamboukou, M. 2020. Mobility assemblages and lines of flight in women’s narratives of forced displacement. European Journal of Women's Studies.
In this paper I take the notion of the mobility assemblage as a theoretical lens through which I consider entanglements between refugee and migrant women on the move, intense experiences of gendered labour, and affective encounters in crossing borders and following lines of flight. The analysis revolves around the life-story of a young refugee woman, who recounts her experiences of travelling to Greece. What emerges from her narrative is a whirl of lines of flight that deterritorialize her from patriarchal regimes, harsh border practices, labour exploitation and the pain of separation on a plane of remaking her present and re-imagining her future.
