Rosi Braidotti Metamorphoses: Towards a Feminist Theory of Becoming, Cambridge: Rosi Braidotti Transpositions: Reviews Rosi Braidotti Metamorphoses: On Nomadic Ethics, Cambridge: Subjectivity is, for Braidotti, always already in motion and bodies and spaces are materialised in the act of becoming different or strange.

Braidotti thus prepares a conceptual space where the de-essentialised subject of Western deconstructivist thinking can take pleasure from and explore the possibilities of social construction and material being. These singularities are, however, not singular stand- alone concepts, nor is the subjective space plane.


Although Braidotti shares a conception of gender constructivity with certain third wave feminist philosophies, she differentiates her viewpoint from less materialist feminist thought, such as is formulated in the early work of Judith Butler. Braidotti argues that there are certain socially constructed identity-shaping loci of becoming, but these are cartographical points within inter- trans- or internal materialising processes rather than external impositions.

In other words, changes hurt and transformations are painful; this does not mean that they are deprived of positive and even pleasurable side- effects, of course. It is a collectively shared and constructed, jointly occupied spatio-temporal mteamorphoses. It comprises the cartographical points of becoming-world and becoming-ethical.
