This article focuses on South Sudan and the narrative accounts of U.S.-resettled women collected in the transitional era prior to independence in 2011. It attends to oft-marginalized and gendered subjects and spaces of politics and, second, by recognizing the intimate and affective scalings through which long-distance political subjects distantly engage with, take responsibility for, and actively remake their home. Finally, this article calls for empirical attention to new nationalisms and citizenships emerging through places like the contemporary South Sudan, those with histories of multiple colonialisms, marked by shifting geometries of power, and shaped from afar by the political intimacies of the diaspora
