Since the 1990s, the study of migration and migrant communities has benefitted from new approaches that have fostered a theoretical and methodological renewal. Indeed, the application of the concept “transnational migration” (Shiller: 1994) has opened new perspectives that included a set of processes by which migrants generate relationships and social, economic, and cultural activities that links societies of origin to those living in the diaspora, creating what some call discontinuous spaces exceeding geographical, cultural and political boundaries. Viewed from the methodological perspective, scholars have started rethinking the strategies of integration used by migrants in their new social environments.
The symposium aims to analyze these processes with a comparative look, enriched with presentations on South Amercia, but leaving open the possibility of including work on other countries. Papers should address some aspect of these processes, theoretical debates and/or methodological questions regarding the scope of transnational migration, including individual and local cases that account for transnational ties, tensions between integration strategies and sustaining transnational ties with countries of origin, the exercise of occupations and activities that account for a regular and intense contact between two or more countries, linkages between different actors on topics of common interest, creating deterritorialized spaces that cross geographic boundaries, cultural and policies.
