Abstract

from [al’manja] with love revisits Critical Migration Studies with the insights of postcolonial and decolonial approaches and carves out a perspective on power relations that brings together transnational feminism and ‘trans(gender) politics’. The book discusses what racism and migratism mean in a German and European context, and work out how they shape hegemonic understandings of 'Germany' and 'Europe'. These locations are understood as geopolitical spaces where multiple transnational trans_stories of migration, diaspora, movement, staying and transing meet, resonate and dissonate. It elaborates on the assumption that the equalization of racism and migratism and the homogenizing use of 'culture' and ‘nation’ in the field of Critical Migration Studies render Europeans of Color unthinkable, as abject positions in migration discourses, even within knowledge production on 'migration' with critical intentions. The approach questions essentialized notions of be_longing, home and community and proposes the conceptualization of trans_diasporing – a power sensitive political perspective that deconstructs categorical gendering and categorical nationalization within a postcolonial framework.
