Dr. Patti Tamara Lenard of University of Ottawa reviews We Are All Migrants: Political Action and the Ubiquitous Condition of Migrant-hood, by Gregory Feldman. By challenging the division between those considered “citizens” and “migrants,” David Feldman shows that both subjects confront disempowerment, uncertainty, and atomization inseparable from the rise of mass society, the isolation of the laboring individual, and the global proliferation of rationalized practices of security and production. He argues that to overcome the condition of migrant-hood, people must be empowered to constitute their own sovereign spaces from their particular standpoints, rather than base these spaces on categorical types of people.
