Abstract [en]

According to Rosi Braidotti, there is a noticeable gap between how we live, our lived experiences, and how we represent ourselves in theoretical terms and discourses. In spite of the complexity of the multiethnic globalized societies that we inhabit, current discourses are marked by what Braidotti terms "an imaginative poverty." Braidotti argues that this poverty must be challenged with new figurations: we need to reinvent ourselves. In line with this, this article displays women's participation in local mobilizations, national politics, social uprisings, and communities of belonging in Cambodia through the lens of figurations. It approaches and deconstructs gendered power relations through the construction of different predictable and unpredictable figurations. Of course, there are countless numbers of figurations, but in this text only a few that are seen as political are discussed.
