„Ich war lange illegal hier, aber jetzt hat mich die Grenze übertreten“ – Subjektivierungsprozesse transnational mobiler Haushaltshilfen

Abstract. This contribution examines the processes of subjectivation of transnational mobile female migrants from Eastern Europe, who work irregularly as domestic workers in Germany. Applying an intersectional framework, the working practices of female migrants are conceptualized as an expression of the interplay between technologies of the self and technologies of domination. Both are constitutive for the migrant subjects and they are thus analyzed as part of geopolitical constellations and economic power relations as well as being influenced by the European border and labor market regime.
