Inscrire l’inestimable. Linéaments d’une recherche-action avec des travailleuses domestiques migrantes à Beyrouth

Abstract : Drawing on a recently started research in Beirut (Lebanon) with women whose migration is tied to a domestic work contract, the present paper reconstitutes a methodological and epistemological path that involves distinct regimes of traces. Initial interest in the ideological structures embedded in language that affect the labor and lives of migrant women in the Kafâla (Sponsorship) System, comes across elements of personal and social memory. In accordance with a situated knowledge epistemology, interviews with employers complement collaborative action-research with migrant women. The action-research involves mapping ordinary initiatives and collective mobilizations, while contributing to the networking and circulation of resistances. Finally, in the field of academic production, a writing strategy focused on singularity produces counter-hegemonic representations of migrant domestic workers.
