National citizenship, migrant deportation and gender/sexual logics of home

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article highlights deportation when imagining the futures of citizenship studies and nation-based citizenship. I center Beloved Home, one of the pillars of the Trans Agenda for Liberation, in order to discuss how nation-state citizenship and migrant deportation regimes converge to make home impossible for many living in the United States. Beloved Home especially foregrounds genders and sexualities, in their interactions with (settler) colonialism, racial capitalism, and slavery, as generating and legitimating ‘unhoming’ through logics of normative family and home, and highlights transgender, queer and feminist scholarship and activisms as resources/tools for transformation.
