Abstract

This book takes the reader into the lives of migrant workers who perform low-status occupations in Ragusa, Sicily. By drawing parallels between the experiences of live-in care and farm migrant workers, the author reveals remarkable similarities in how they relate to the labour market, to the state, and to the employers, building bridges between two sectors of the economy often studied separately. Through extensive fieldwork and interviews with workers and employers, the author explores how st...

Abstract

L'immigration donne lieu à de nombreux débats d'où l'anthropologie est assez souvent absente. Cela tient sans doute à ce que d'autres disciplines occupent le devant de la scène. En même temps, l'étude des phénomènes migratoires privilégie les ressortissants du Maghreb. Ce cahier présente un point de vue anthropologique sur l'immigration où les populations originaires des pays du Maghreb aussi bien que d'Italie ou de l'Europe de l'Est (les Tziganes) sont prises en considération dans une perspe...

Abstract

Written in his mother’s unique voice, John Leigh Walters pushes the boundaries of memoir in A Very Capable Life, the extraordinary journey of a seemingly ordinary woman. Zarah Petri was a child when her family left Hungary to establish a new life in Canada in the 1920s. With courage and innovation, Zarah and her family survived the Depression―even if it meant breaking the law to do so. In celebrating Zarah Petri, A Very Capable Life pays homage to all “ordinary” women of the early twentieth century who challenged society’s conventions for the sake of survival.

Abstract

Les migrations sont-elles une réponse universelle à une situation de crise ? Poser cette question ouvre sans doute le plus vaste débat sur l’histoire du mouvement des hommes. Cet ouvrage illustre bien la diversité et la multiplicité de cette incroyable richesse qu'est le mouvement des hommes et des peuples sur notre planète. Tout changement est un déséquilibre et, réciproquement, ce sont les déséquilibres qui permettent le changement. Est-il possible d’anticiper, dès lors, sur le futur ? Peu...

Abstract

Paris, Ville Lumière, miroir du monde, Babel des temps modernes, voilà l’image que nous a léguée le XIXe siècle. Exilés, sans-patrie, poètes, romanciers, peintres, musiciens, étudiants y ont trouvé refuge. De telle manière que tous ces étrangers de Paris ont constitué le Paris des étrangers. Mais après le traumatisme de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, Paris est-il toujours la capitale des libertés ? Les victimes des révolutions et des répressions ; se dirigent-elles encore vers la capitale de l...

Abstract

Près d'un siècle après la grande vague migratoire qui les a menés de la Méditerranée orientale à Buenos Aires et aux vallées de la Cordillère andine, les Arabes d'Argentine constituent un objet de recherche inépuisable pour les sciences sociales. La dialectique entre des politiques publiques d'intégration et les dynamiques internes d'un groupe hétérogène tant par ses appartenances confessionnelles chrétiennes ou musulmanes que par sa forte stratification sociale, a généré des formes spécifiqu...

Abstract

An exploration of social movement media practices in an increasingly complex media ecology, through richly detailed cases of immigrant rights activism.For decades, social movements have vied for attention from the mainstream mass media—newspapers, radio, and television. Today, many argue that social media power social movements, from the Egyptian revolution to Occupy Wall Street. Yet, as Sasha Costanza-Chock reports, community organizers know that social media enhance, rather than replace, face-to-face organizing. The revolution will be tweeted, but tweets alone do not the revolution make. In Out of the Shadows, Into the Streets! Costanza-Chock traces a much broader social movement media ecology. Through a richly detailed account of daily media practices in the immigrant rights movement, the book argues that there is a new paradigm of social movement media making: transmedia organizing. Despite the current spotlight on digital media, Costanza-Chock finds, social movement media practices tend to be cross-platform, participatory, and linked to action. Immigrant rights organizers leverage social media creatively, even as they create media ranging from posters and street theater to Spanish-language radio, print, and television.Drawing on extensive interviews, workshops, and media organizing projects, Costanza-Chock presents case studies of transmedia organizing in the immigrant rights movement over the last decade. Chapters focus on the historic mass protests against the anti-immigrant Sensenbrenner Bill; coverage of police brutality against peaceful activists; efforts to widen access to digital media tools and skills for low-wage immigrant workers; paths to participation in DREAM activism; and the implications of professionalism for transmedia organizing. These cases show us how savvy transmedia organizers work to strengthen movement identity, win political and economic victories, and transform public consciousness forever.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage examine les territoires de l’attente, nés du déplacement de populations qui y ont laissé leur empreinte, et la multiplicité des formes qu’ils revêtent dans les mondes américains. Il tente d’établir leurs dimensions, de comprendre leurs statuts juridiques, leurs articulations avec l’espace environnant, leurs temporalités spécifiques ainsi que la variété des jeux économiques et sociaux qui s’y déploient.

Abstract

Protect, Serve, and Deport exposes the on-the-ground workings of local immigration enforcement in Nashville, Tennessee. Between 2007 and 2012, Nashville’s local jail participated in an immigration enforcement program called 287(g), which turned jail employees into immigration officers who identified over ten thousand removable immigrants for deportation. The vast majority of those identified for removal were not serious criminals but Latino residents arrested by local police for minor violations. Protect, Serve, and Deport explains how local politics, state laws, institutional policies, and police practices work together to deliver immigrants into an expanding federal deportation system, conveying powerful messages about race, citizenship, and belonging.

Abstract

La plurinationalité est un objet de polémiques récurrent, en particulier celle des citoyens « à cheval » sur la Méditerranée par leurs nationalités, à la fois européens et maghrébins. D’une rive à l’autre, on questionne leur loyauté, possiblement écornée par leur double appartenance ; une appartenance qui, à être plurielle, ne saurait être entière. Cet ouvrage intervient au cœur de la tourmente récemment suscitée par les réformes constitutionnelles concomitantes en France et en Algérie, l’une...
