Engagement with R. Braidotti’s work: Iveta Jusova’s article on European immigration and continental feminism

Dr. Iveta Jusova (Antioch University, USA) has recently published an article ‘European Immigration and Continental Feminism: Theories of Rosi Braidotti’. The article considers the academic writings and activism of Rosi Braidotti against the background of the growing religiously and racially biased anti-immigration sentiment in Europe.

Special attention is paid to Braidotti’s recent response to the post-secular turn in feminism. The article contends that Braidotti’s work highlights and embraces the destabilising structural effects the intensified migration flows have on European identity. It argues that Braidotti charts new models of European subjectivity that would facilitate mutually affirmative and transformative relationships between those (self-)perceived as Western feminists and those positioned as immigrant women.

The article was published in Feminist Theory, Vol. 12(1), 2011. pp. 55-73. Online version of the article available at http://fty.sagepub.com/content/12/1/55.
