Family and Gender in Migration

In this course (Seminar) we approach family and gender issues which were either absent or not in the focus of attention, as on earlier researches and literature on migration the center of attention was almost exclusively on male migrants. The aim is to explore when and how gender and family members were “discovered” by the researchers. How the researchers gradually began to reveal the contribution of women, children, other members of the family to the shaping of the migratory process and experience as well as the changes in gender and intergenerational family relations, hierarchies and dynamics in the context of contemporary migration. We also see how the new concepts of transnational migration, transnational families, transnational mothering alter the focus of the researches and the ways these issues are approached the last decades.
