Inter-area/Border Crossing

Organized Panel Session

1 - Between Camps and Community: Women, Rebels and Border Crossings

Saturday, July 7
10:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Location: Silveroak II, Ground Floor

This paper looks at the tentative and precarious lives of women insurgents caught in the borders bewteen hideouts and the home territory while ceasefires and peace negotiations are being brokered. The affects of peril, loss and vulnerability that surround their lives of  discovering new borders and boundaries on a regular basis suggest how borders are not merely physical and spatial but also often constructed by those living faraway from these contentious spaces. Much of the ethnography comes from testimonios and field interviews conducted during the moment of ceasefire  after the ULFA  rebels from Northeast India had to flee Bhutanese camps in the wake of  the Indo-Bhutan Army crackdown on rebel camps situated along the borders.
