Through a multisite ethnographic research on foreign women egresses from São Paulo and Catalonia prison systems, this project aims to analyze how gender, articulated with other differences, operates in the entanglements between prison and transnational population flows. The proposal is to analyze the juxtapositions as well as the webs produced by prison and other state border control devices, establishing a dialogue between the studies on the criminalization of migration and the results of ethnographic work, centered on the transits of women who leave (return) from (to) prisons in both countries (Brazil and Spain) and remain as irregular migrants in the nations where they were imprisoned. As fieldwork, I follow trajectories of a significant number of women with whom I have established interlocution since my doctoral and postdoctoral research: Brazilians who were imprisoned in Barcelona and women from countries such as Spain, South Africa and Philippines, who spent years in prisons in the city of São Paulo and who currently live in the peripheries of both cities.
