Critical realism takes on the plurality and differentiation that liberation movements claim, producing political subjectivities marked by the materiality of bodies and the stigma of subalternity. They oscillate between the refusal of the institutional logic and the attempt to carve out a recognition of status and rights that at times takes the form of exclusion and ownership. The point of ambiguity, therefore, is where the politics of identity and class intersect. If it is the modality of practices that distinguishes paths compromised with domination and processes of subjectification that are open to common struggle with other subalterns, the concept of class can be the catalyst for intersectional struggles against oppression and exploitation.
