This presentation provides a model of anti-racist anti-colonial reflexivity in contrast to white Eurocentric western models. Working with issues of migration brings social work practitioners into close proximity to the predicaments and possibilities of position, location and residence. This presentation offers a Black feminist model of social work critical reflexivity that draws on Brah’s (1996) concept of ‘diaspora space’. Configured on the predicaments of place, location and boundaries Black feminist diaspora spaces of critical reflexivity trouble comfortable, taken for granted professional territories of social work practice. The proposal is that, the content of social work with dis-placed, dis-located and dis-membered people and communities provides the basis for a method of Black feminist diaspora spaces social work reflexivity.
