Abstract [en]

In this chapter, I discuss how expats working in Egypt strive to transition towards cosmopolitan selfhood by narrating their encounters with local others in enthusiastic terms. Leaning on theories by Ahmed, Butler and Spivak, I argue that by “knowing through others” expats self-transform, thereby approaching desirable selfhood and becoming professionally versatile. Their knowledge of/through otherhood enables them to maintain a position of knowingness from which relations with others are re-storied in ideologically updated terms. On organizational levels, expatriate stories aggregate into a business storytelling of egalitarianism and cultural sensitivity, heralding the inclusion of local others. This manifested inclusion simultaneously conceals that the presence of others is “partial,” narrative rather than epistemological, as westerners continue to be constituted as those who “know” and define boundaries for what knowledge others may have.
