In this paper I trace a shift in the method that I used to research the alliance between 'first' and 'third' world activists in the global justice movement. This shift takes place between a sociological case study of relations in the global justice movement movement, and a fictocritical diagnosis of the ethics and politics of these relations. Referring to postcolonial feminist critiques of sociology and ethnography, I consider fictocriticism as a framing technology for activating Spivak's 'transnational literacy' and 'ethical semiosis'. Thus I pose fictocriticism 'as' social movement, in the sense that it allows the social critic/activist to move between master and othered frames in thinking through the question of alliance across difference and power.
