Feeling the real: the non-nomadic subject of feminism
Tamboukou, M. 2020. Feeling the real: the non-nomadic subject of feminism. Theory, Culture and Society.
Nomadism as a spatial concept denoting uncharted movements has opened up non-static ways of theorizing the subject in feminist theory and beyond. But it seems that the nomads of the real world and their torturing wanderings today, have irrevocably challenged the romance of unregulated movement and force us to radically rethink the very concept of nomadism itself. In this paper I address the aporias that women’s entanglement in current mobility assemblages has raised in the ways we understand and imagine the subject of feminism. In doing so, I experiment with the concept of the non-nomad as an emergent figuration that retains the radicalism of nomadic theories, while pointing to their margins, shadows and exclusions.
