Abstract

There is significant interest in the way that collective subjectivities emerge, and in how they negotiate power to create change. Through a discussion of work that I have done with the Red Square Movement (a national student network organising for a radically different educational system in the UK) I argue that the posthuman theorist Braidotti’s conception of the nomadic subject is a compelling conceptual lens by which to read this activity. Drawing on my experiences, I suggest that the nomad is greatly strengthened when she works transversally, and thus alongside both the comrade and the non-nomad. This research has taken place as part of my doctorate and uses a militant research methodology.
