Affect, narratives and politics of Southeast Asian migration

Explores the politics of gendered labor migration in Southeast Asia through the stories and perspectives of Indonesian and Filipina women presented in films, fiction, and performance. Shows how the emotionality of these texts contribute to the emergence and vitality of women’s social movements in Southeast Asia. Examines how the films in Singapore and Hong Kong problematize the inherent contradictions of social exclusion in the lives and intimate work of migrant women in private and public spaces of these host states. Focuses on the theme of suffering in the story of victimhood and exploitation written by Southeast Asian migration women.
