13. ‘A Small Plot of New Land at All Times’

A Narrative of a Vulnerability Mortified

In this chapter, I explore the normalization of my own vulnerability and immigrant otherness through a subjectivity of hope and aspiration. In particular, I embed my problematization of – and coping with – personal precarity (as a working-class Serbian academic in Belgium and the United States) in discourses of aspirational temporality and de-territorialized hope for happiness.
