Globalisation and transnational migration have altered people's understanding of as well as their relationship to their dwelling places and places of origin. Taking the empirical case of the South Lebanese Shi'ite village of Zrariye and its migrant population in Abidjan/Côte d'Ivoire, the book shows how place, which has become a vital political, economic and social resource, continues to be of tremendous significance in the age of mobility and change. Lebanese in Motion explores how villagers at home and abroad are involved in producing a translocal village-in-the-making, which emanates as a social field through their practices and narratives. Travel and the means of communication make it possible to keep in constant touch and thus renegotiate kinship, generational and gender relationships beyond local, regional and nation-state boundaries. Particularly interested in understanding how female identities are redefined, the study delineates how gender and place are mutually constituted in the translocal village under study.

Anja Peleikis is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle/Saale, Germany.

Book Description Transcript Verlag, Austria, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Globalisation and transnational migration have altered people's understanding of as well as their relationship to their 'dwelling places' and 'places of origin'. Taking the empirical case of the South Lebanese Shi'ite village of Zrariye and its migrant population in Abidjan/Cote d'Ivoire, the book shows how 'place', which has become a vital political, economic and social resource, continues to be of tremendous significance in the age of mobility and change. 'Lebanese in Motion' explores how villagers 'at home' and 'abroad' are involved in producing a "translocal village-in-the-making", which emanates as a social field through their practices and narratives. Travel and the means of communication make it possible to keep in constant touch and thus renegotiate kinship, generational and gender relationships beyond local, regional and nation-state boundaries. Particularly interested in understanding how female identities are redefined, the study delineates how gender and place are mutually constituted in the translocal village under study.
