Week 1 4: Transnational Families

This lecture considers the impact of migration on families, exploring the ways in which long-distance ties and global networks are constructed and maintained. It discusses emerging concepts around transnational families such as diasporic families, stretched families, care networks, emotional labour and long distance intimacy. Finally, it examines some of the restrictive family reunification policies in UK and across the world.

Week 15: Transnational Home and Belonging

Following from the previous week, this lecture attend to the notions of home and belonging that are produced, maintained and challenged during migration. Taking home as simultaneously material, symbolic and imagined, we examine ways that notions of belonging are tied to these different aspects of the home. In particular, we explores the processes of home-making, its material and symbolic connections in transnational spaces, and the belonging and citizenship practices of hometown associations.

Week 17: Labour Migration I - The “Bottom” End

This lecture focusses on labour migration at the “bottom” end of labour markets in Global North countries; discussing the types of migration flows into such labour markets and probing the particular characteristics of such work for migrants. We focus on ‘dirty, dangerous and dull’ laboring in Northern global cities and ask whether/how resistance to damaging working conditions can occur for migrant labourers in peripheral areas of economies.
