Narratively (bang) out of order: On hostile environment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This is an everyday text arisen from the critical, performative conjuncture embedded in the politically and personally troubled realities of being an immigrant in the UK under the Hostile Environment policy. It is a failed venture to orchestrate a congruous symphony amongst the discordant voices in me chiming in and out so abruptly and out of sync in the wake of anti- immigration, racist rhetoric saturating discursive strategies and policy statements that produce immigration as an issue of social epidemic. Every encounter is a bang – a disruptive, inner shock.
