Abstract

Abstract:

The article reflects on the ways in which social reproduction intersects with (im)-mobility in export-processing zones in Sri Lanka and the outskirts of prisons in Argentina. Framing factories and prisons as "carceral spaces" and drawing upon diverse case study materials, it focuses on (i) the daily circulations and waiting that take place around these closely regulated sites and (ii) the relations of care that emerge in these sites. The article analyzes how gendered care work can be an active form of agency and resistance to structural confinement and violence, which is nevertheless embedded in broader forms of depletion.
