Work, Immigration, Gender: New Subjects of Cultural Politics

Lisa Lowe draws attention to the intersection of processes of immigration, racialization, labor exploitation, and gender relations. As corporations attempt to remain competitive in the global arena, the new patterns of flexible accumulation and mixed production that have emerged preserve and reproduce these specific differentiated forms of work. Immigration has intensified according to these new patterns of accumulation and production, and is now more than ever the site of the contradictions between the national state and the global economy.
