Considering the importance of gender stratification when the domestic space is transnational rather than shared, the organizers seek to understand how the construction of gender is reformulated in the family when one member of the family migrates to another country. Transnational relationships and practices, as well as routine interactions between migrants and their non-migrant partners, have repercussions on family, as an institution and on family relations.
Considering the methodological options as a strategy for the conceptual development of this evolving research area, the objective of this conference is to bring together several, empirically structured, perspectives with the contributions of researchers from different scientific areas.
Papers are welcome that seeks to present current research on frameworks related with transnational family studies. PhD students are particularly welcome.
It is organised on behalf of TLNetwork research group placed at ICS-ULisbon, and granted by FCT (PTDC/AFR/119149/2010) in the context of the research project â€Places and belongings: circular conjugalities between Angola and Portugal".
