|Contents:||Two themes within the area of refugee studies are the growing discussions of refugee mobility, and increasing critical discourse analyses of various refugee related texts. This paper brings together these two themes by pointing to the need to undertake critical examination of the racialized and gendered implications of writing about mobility in the context of Refugee Studies. Recent work by Sherene Razack on 'race', space and mobility in the Canadian context, is critiqued through work by Judith Butler and Frantz Fanon in order to show, first, that the body takes on a material being discursively in relation to space; that this embodiment simultaneously produces social space, also racialized and gendered; and finally, that the racialized and gendered body is marked by a lessened ability to move through social space. The implications of this work for Refugee Studies are explored.|
