Abstract

O presente trabalho constitui urna reflexão antropológica sobre o tema da construção social das identidades desviantes, a partir de uma pesquisa sobre uma figura marginal complexa, conceptualizada como fonte de impureza, poluição e perigo para a identidade nacional portuguesa - o vadio e seus equiparados (mendigo profissional, prostituta de escândalo público, homossexual, chulo, rufião, proxeneta, reincidente, etc.) -, bem como sobre o modelo institucional criado com vista à sua repressão e regeneração moral pelo projecto sociopolítico dominante ao longo dum período recente da história portuguesa contemporânea vulgarmente designado por Estado Novo.

Abstract

Wie entstehen und reproduzieren sich soziale Bewegungen? Was ist das Verhältnis sozialer Bewegungen zu anderen Typen sozialer Systeme wie z.B. Organisationen, dem Wirtschaftssystem oder der Gesellschaft? Luca Tratschin präsentiert eine kommunikationstheoretische Antwort auf diese Fragen und zeigt, wie soziale Bewegungen durch die kontingente Entdeckung von Gemeinsamkeiten vieler raum-zeitlich verankerter Protestkommunikationen entstehen können.

Abstract

This open access book offers new insights into the ageing-migration nexus and the nature of home. Documenting the hidden world of France’s migrant worker hostels, it explores why older North and West African men continue to live past retirement age in this sub-standard housing. Conventional wisdom holds that at retirement labour migrants ought to instead return to their families in home countries, where their French pensions would have far greater purchasing power.This paradox is the point of departure for a book which transports readers from the banlieues of Paris to the banks of the Senegal River and the villages of the Anti-Atlas. In intimate ethnographic detail, the author brings to life the experiences of these older labour migrants by sharing in the life of the hostels as a resident, by observing at close quarters the men's family life on the other side of the Mediterranean as a guest in their homes, and even by accompanying them in their travels by bus, sea, and air.The monograph evaluates several theories of migration against rich qualitative data gathered from multiple methods: biographical narrative and semi-structured interviews, participant observation, and archival research. In the process, it offers a thoughtful contribution to broader debates on what it means for migrants to belong and achieve inclusion in society.
