My new book Home-land: Romanian Roma, domestic spaces and the state has been published by University of Bristol Press.
The book explores how border regimes are crafted through care and compassion at the front-line of service provision in the UK. Focusing on how the nation-state is reproduced within the home, the book considers what it is like to have your legal status, your right to ‘belong’. judged from your everyday domestic life. The book considers the divide between state and family, home-land and home, and what it means for the new rules of citizenship.
