“Postcolonial feminists do not stay suspended ‘between worlds’s but take us to another place, another subjectivity. They celebrate the richness, resilience, and resonance of overlapping, interactive, mutually creating worlds. This perspective reflects postcolonial studies’ general insights on race and subalternity but these are read explicitly through the analytical lens of gender. Such intersections and integrations show the multivaried, cross-cutting allegiances of contemporary politics where simple binaries such as ‘coloniser’ versus ‘colonised’,‘international’ versus ‘domestic’,‘men’ versus ‘women’, ‘masculinity’ versus ‘femininity’ do not apply.” -Shirin M. Rai on Postcolonial-Feminist Queries
I am back blogging for the next two weeks or so discussing my continued research in Jordan. I received a grant through CISLA to finish off a two year project on the
“Social Sustainability of Palestinian women refugees living in Jordan.” This is very much a working title, and to be quite honest, it doesn’t reflect what I’m studying. Two weeks from now, it will be completely reframed and overanalyzed.
4 more days until I touch down in Jordan.
