Course content

This research area looks at the interrelations between families and migration, ranging from the experiences of transnational families, intergenerational relationships, transmission of cultural resources, to families creating new forms of belonging and citizenship. Gender and the creation of new gendered identities and practices, as well as creations of families of choice across ethnic, sexual and racialised boundaries are part of these processes.
