Syncretic space and transversal parties: Friday night with Calais Migrant Solidarity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


These are a series of field notes and diary entries woven together to show a brief moment of my experience as a solidarity activist in Calais. I’ve been involved in migrant solidarity activism for most of my adult life and feel really excited about Calais Migrant Solidarity as a project and experiment in ways that we collectively reproduce ourselves as a multitude or community of many. In my academic work I write about notions of safety, Otherness and ‘intersectional inclusion’ and look at the ways that we as activists negotiate our individual experiences of ‘negative’ affect (especially ‘bad’ feelings like being unsafe or at risk). It is my hope that we might find ways to collectivise our vulnerabilities, enacting an individually and collectively differentiated construction of solidarity through the spaces we create together.
