Description - Gender in Transnationalism by Ruba Salih

A fascinating ethnographic journey into migrant women's lives across two countries, Gender in Transnationalism highlights women's construction of 'home' between Morocco and Italy as a significant site whereby broader feelings and narratives of displacement and belonging can be grasped. Salih investigates what Moroccan women's relations with their adopted country are and how their identities, conceptualisations of home and cultural practices are shaped by the transnational dimension of their lives. She finally concludes that not only should the nature and quality of women's movements and practices be understood in the context of the nature and quality of their membership in the household, state or society but that transnationalism itself may challenge or reproduce inequalities between both genders and places. This interdisciplinary book provides a gendered account of transnational migration, in a context of changing configurations in both the social sciences and people's lives, of notions of locality, identity, difference and citizenship and by focusing on the 'lived experience' of Moroccan migrant women's transnationalism between Morocco and Italy. It will interest students and researchers of transnationalism, migration and gender.
