  • Theorizing women's mobility in the Balkans
    Slapšak, Svetlana
    The paper deals with the concept of women's mobility in all its semiotic varieties, from travelling, nomadism, to transgressing political and cultural borders, subverting stereotypal national ... deliminations, translating (language and culture), derouting memory lane. Starting from Rosi Braidotti's "nomadic subject", the paper focuses on local knowledge and positioning and multiple loyalties of women in the Balkan area. Through the specific activist event (a group of women peace-activists travelling through the traumatic areas and collective memory presentation of all the sides in the recent Yugoslav war and in Albania in 2002), theorizing is winding through a difficult space of stereotypes, colonial inventions and colonized wisdom in an attempt to chart a new situatedness and to deconstruct the self-presentation and the forced universalized presentation of the feminine in the Balkans.
