Fluid Identifications in the Age of Advanced Marginality

  • Fabien TruongEmail author
Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, I consider an apparent paradox drawn from the work of Loïc Wacquant—non-convergence between the forms of urban marginality in Europe and the United States, but the emergence of a common regime of global advanced urban marginalization—which challenges the empirical investigation of the relationship between “marginality” and “identity”. I examine the ethnographic implications of this relationship through incorporating analyses of time, space, and individual narratives. While the ethnicization of social relations and identity politics have emerged as media topos in Europe, I point out the actual fluidity of identifications in defamed neighbourhoods and analyse their rationale.
