Families caring across borders : migration, ageing, and transnational caregiving by Loretta Baldassar( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Families Caring Across Borders provides an ethnographic account of migrants and refugees who live in Australia and their experiences and practices of transnational caregiving of parents in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and New Zealand. This timely work contributes rich, detailed knowledge of how people respond to a world characterised by unprecedented mobility - both voluntary and forced - globalised job markets and an ageing population, as increasing numbers of families find themselves spread across the globe and caring for elderly parents from a distance."--Jacket

Transnational families, migration and the circulation of care : understanding mobility and absence in family life by Loretta Baldassar( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Without denying the difficulties that confront migrants and their distant kin, this volume highlights the agency of family members in transnational processes of care, in an effort to acknowledge the transnational family as an increasingly common family form and to question the predominantly negative conceptualisations of this type of family. It re-conceptualises transnational care as a set of activities that circulates between home and host countries - across generations - and fluctuates over the life course, going beyond a focus on mother-child relationships to include multidirectional exchanges across generations and between genders. It highlights, in particular, how the sense of belonging in transnational families is sustained by the reciprocal, though uneven, exchange of caregiving, which binds members together in intergenerational networks of reciprocity and obligation, love and trust that are simultaneously fraught with tension, contest and relations of unequal power. The chapters that make up this volume cover a rich array of ethnographic case studies including analyses of transnational families who circulate care between developing nations in Africa, Latin America and Asia to wealthier nations in North America, Europe and Australia. There are also examples of intra- and extra- European, Australian and North American migration, which involve the mobility of both the unskilled and working class as well as the skilled middle and aspirational classes
From paesani to global Italians : Veneto migrants in Australia by Loretta Baldassar( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the migration history and experiences of migrants from the Veneto region in the north-east of Italy. As the Veneto, which includes the province of Venice, is today one of the most affluent regions in Italy, this book provides a contrast to the rather more well-known story of southern Italian migration
Refugee protection and the role of law : conflicting identities by Susan Kneebone( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La page I indique : "Sixty years on from the signing of the Refugee Convention, forced migration and refugee movements continue to raise global concerns for hosting states and regions, for countries of origin, for humanitarian organisations on the ground, and, of course, for the refugee. This edited volume is framed around two themes which go to the core of contemporary 'refugeehood': protection and identity. It analyses how the issue of refugee identity is shaped by and responds to the legal regime of refugee protection in contemporary times. The book investigates the premise that there is a narrowing of protection space in many countries and many highly visible incidents of refoulement. It argues that 'Protection', which is a core focus of the Refugee Convention, appears to be under threat, as there are many gaps and inconsistencies in practice. Contributors to the volume, who include Erika Feller, Elspeth Guild, Helene Lambert and Roger Zetter, look at the relevant issues from the perspective of a number of different disciplines including law, politics, sociology, and anthropology. The chapters examine the link between identity and protection as a basis for understanding how the Refugee Convention has been and is being applied in policy and practice. The situation in a number of jurisdictions and regions in Europe, North America, South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East is explored in order to ask the question does jurisprudence under the Refugee Convention need better coordination and how successful is oversight of the Convention?"
Chinese migration to Europe : Prato, Italy and beyond( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through an analysis of Chinese migration to Europe, this volume examines the most pressing migration and integration issues facing many societies today, from the political and policy-based challenges of managing increasingly diverse communities, to individual lived experiences of identity and belonging. In addition to chapters on the UK, France and Italy, the book spotlights one of the most extraordinary examples of Chinese migration to Europe: that provided by the city of Prato, just 20km from Florence in Tuscany, Italy. Renowned for its historic textile industry, Prato is now home to one of the largest populations of Chinese residents in Europe, a phenomenon that is remarkable not only for its magnitude but also for the speed with which it has developed. This edited collection, which brings together twenty-seven separate contributors, deepens our understanding of the case of Prato within the context of Chinese migration to the new Europe"--

Migration as transnational interaction Italy re-visited by Loretta Baldassar( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent years there have been great advances in the incorporation of ItalianAustralian studies into Italian studies. These include studies of literature, migration and contemporary culture. At the same time, however, there seems to be no consensus among Italianists as to the place ItalianAustralian studies should have in the curriculum. Traditionally, most departments of Italian have focused on the language, history and culture of Italy. My view is that Departments of Italian only stand to gain if they incorporate the study of Italo-Australia, and, by extension, those other ltalies created by migration

The fear of diversity by Loretta Baldassar( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

O'Connor's book is an important and significant contribution to ItalianAustralian historical studies. The integrity of the data, comprising careful and thorough research of (to date) untapped archival material, parliamentary papers, state records, letters and interviews, is matched by the book's readability. O'Connor relates information with intelligence, impartiality and sensitivity not only bringing to light but bringing to life the experiences of early Italian settlers inSouth Australia. The book goes a long way to rectifying the dearth of information in published form on this subject

Les petites Italies dans le monde by Patrizia Audenino( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les Petites Italies dans le monde", c'est l'histoire planétaire des migrants italiens vue par le plus petit commun dénominateur : le semis sur plusieurs continents de quartiers urbains devenus les territoires de communautés qui se sont longtemps pensées comme l'autre bout d'une chaîne liée à leur village ou région de la péninsule. Comment s'est faite la précipitation, de cette diversité d'origines à l'espace de quelques rues dans les villes et métropoles des pays d'installation ? Comment s'y est forgée une identité italienne de l'étranger et selon quels processus ces "ethnoterritoires" ont-ils produit des citadins invisibles, composante néanmoins singulière des peuples d'accueil ? D'un côté, le vécu des quartiers, de l'autre, les variantes entre les sociétés d'immigration : les termes de la comparaison semblaient simples. Historiens de renom ou jeunes chercheurs, les auteurs, originaires de nombreux pays, réservent quelques surprises au fil du livre. Le voyage se fait à l'envers : à partir du Nouveau monde, où sont nées les Petites Italies, on revient vers l'Europe où elles n'ont pas eu la même fortune, pour toucher aux limites inédites de la Russie et de l'Australie. L'évolution sociale s'efface souvent derrière les pratiques culturelles - cinéma, radio -, alors que le poids du politique dans la construction des identités se trouve confirmé. Et si la longue durée de deux siècles d'émigration est souvent prise en compte, c'est pour interroger le devenir même de l'expression "Petite Italie". Cela conduit à décoder les images, les oeuvres littéraires et le discours des historiens eux-mêmes. De la version noire du xixe siècle où Little Italy rimait avec quartier mal famé peuplé d'immigrés crasseux et bruyants, aux évocations plus chaleureuses qui ont fini par s'installer avant de laisser place aux reconstructions mythiques contemporaines, les "Petites Italies" ont toujours alimenté des représentations qui n'avaient que peu à voir avec le vécu et le devenir
