    The Joy of Learning: Feminist Materialist Pedagogies and the Freedom of Education.Maria Tamboukou - 2018 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 50 (9):868-877.
    In this article, I trace lines of materialist pedagogies in the history of women workers’ education following feminist interpretations of Spinoza’s assemblage of joyful affects. More particularly, I focus on the notions of laetitia [joy], gaudium [gladness] and hilaritas [cheerfulness] as entanglements of joy and trace their expression in practices and discourses inscribed in archival documents that I have reassembled around the theme of women workers’ education. My reading of Ethics follows a range of feminist thinkers that have engaged with (...)

    Love, Narratives, Politics: Encounters Between Hannah Arendt and Rosa Luxemburg.Maria Tamboukou - 2013 - Theory, Culture and Society 30 (1):35-56.
    In this article I explore relationships between love and politics by looking into Rosa Luxemburg’s letters to her lover and comrade Leo Jogiches. My discussion is framed within Hannah Arendt’s conceptualization of love as a manifestation of existence through the Augustinian journey of memory and as an existential force binding together the three faculties of the mind in her philosophical analysis: thinking, willing and judging. What I argue is that letters are crucial in enacting plurality and communication, and that Luxemburg’s (...)

    Imagining and Living the Revolution: An Arendtian Reading of Rosa Luxemburg's Letters and Writings.Maria Tamboukou - 2014 - Feminist Review 106 (1):27-42.
    In this paper, I look into personal and political entanglements in Rosa Luxemburg's letters and essays revolving around questions and problems of the revolution. The analysis is informed by Hannah Arendt's theorisation of revolutions in modernity, as well as her reading of narratives within the political. What is intriguing about the Luxemburg/ Arendt encounter is the fact that although both theorists consciously refused to connect themselves with feminist ideas and movements of their times and geographies, their writings have inspired a (...)

    Mobility Assemblages and Lines of Flight in Women’s Narratives of Forced Displacement.Maria Tamboukou - 2020 - European Journal of Women's Studies 27 (3):235-249.
    In this article I take the notion of the mobility assemblage as a theoretical lens through which I consider entanglements between refugee and migrant women on the move, intense experiences of gendered labour, and affective encounters in crossing borders and following lines of flight. The analysis revolves around the life-story of a young refugee woman, who recounts her experiences of travelling to Greece. What emerges from her narrative is a whirl of lines of flight that deterritorialize her from patriarchal regimes, (...)

    Feeling the Real: The Non-Nomadic Subject of Feminism.Maria Tamboukou - 2021 - Theory, Culture and Society 38 (3):3-27.
    Nomadism as a spatial concept denoting uncharted movements has opened up non-static ways of theorizing the subject in feminist theory and beyond. But it seems that the nomads of the real world and their torturing wanderings today have irrevocably challenged the romance of unregulated movement and force us to radically rethink the very concept of nomadism itself. In this paper I address the aporias that women's entanglement in current mobility assemblages has raised in the ways we understand and imagine the (...)
