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

"Exit and Voice is a compelling account of how Mexican migrants with strong ties to their home communities impact the economic and political welfare of those they leave behind. In many decentralized democracies like Mexico, migrants step in to supply public goods when local or state government cannot. Though migrants’ cross-border investments often improve citizens’ access to these goods and create a more responsive local government, their work allows them to unintentionally exert political engagement and power, undermining the influence of those still living in their hometowns. Exit and Voice sheds light on how migrant transnational engagement refashions the meaning of community, democratic governance, and practices of citizenship in the era of globalization. “An extraordinary analysis of what it means to be a migrant. Duquette-Rury gives us a text that goes well beyond the familiar, and situates the migrant in a complex set of vectors, both local and transnational, opening up the meaning of migration itself.” SASKIA SASSEN, author of Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy “How do people who move to another country sometimes become more influential in the place they left? Exit and Voice combines surveys and lively details from original fieldwork to explore this paradox and identify the fragile pillars sustaining efforts to live in two worlds.” DAVID FITZGERALD, author of Refuge beyond Reach: How Rich Democracies Repel Asylum Seekers “Despite distance and difficulties, migrants around the world reach down into their pockets to help out the communities they left behind. Hoping that migration can spur development and possibly even democracy, scholars and policy makers find the effort laudable. But as Duquette-Rury demonstrates in this brilliant, beautifully written book, engaging from abroad is a challenging enterprise. A book to be savored by scholars and students alike.” ROGER WALDINGER, Distinguished Professor and Director of the UCLA Center for the Study of International Migration"

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

Basierend auf einer mehrmonatigen Feldforschung beschreiben die AutorInnen das Leben junger Kinder in Unterkünften für geflüchtete Menschen.

Die AutorInnen kommen zu einer kritischen Einschätzung der Lage und richten Empfehlungen an Politik, Praxis und Wissenschaft.

Abstract

Depuis 30 ans, des milliers d'hommes et de femmes originaires du Vietnam ont quitté leur pays pour venir s'installer au Canada et au Québec, et ce, dans des conditions souvent difficiles. Aujourd'hui, la communauté vietnamienne compte plus de 25 000 personnes à Montréal et dans sa région. Ce n'est certes pas la plus nombreuse dans le paysage ethnique montréalais, mais elle y occupe une place importante. La plupart des Viéto-Montréalais se sont admirablement bien adaptés à leur société d'accueil et leurs expériences migratoires demeurent singulières. Mais les connaissons-nous vraiment ? Que savons-nous de leur vie familiale, de leurs activités économiques et de leurs croyances religieuses ? Quelle est la situation des jeunes ? Par delà la simple description, les auteurs tentent de saisir les mécanismes ayant permis à cette communauté de bâtir au Québec une vie économique, sociale et culturelle nouvelle, en adéquation avec son identité. La notion de « capital social », largement abordée ici, permet de mieux comprendre comment les familles et les communautés immigrées établissent des relations solides à l'intérieur comme à l'extérieur de leur groupe d'origine. Tout au long de cet ouvrage qui privilégie une approche anthropologique, le lecteur pourra comprendre comment les Viéto-Montréalais ont su tirer parti du multiculturalisme ambiant pour mieux s'adapter et s'intégrer.
