Abstract

In the wake of the Greek economic crisis, pluralized groups of subalterns are coming together across Athens to take advantage of new, post-bailout, below-the-radar work opportunities. This article follows one such group consisting of an undocumented migrant from Mauritania and a small group of Roma (Gypsies), as they established an undocumented transportation business. It probes the complex relationship between subjective identity formation and the emergence of new modes of collective political agency in neoliberal contexts. By adapting work-related techniques of survival, members of the transport group and their broader networks are creating public spaces of multivalent political intensity.
