Sinopse

This book explores how Brazilian migrant women 'do family' with their family members in Brazil. Of particular importance is their practice of family rituals and the giving of ritualist features to family practices to create and recreate a sense of familyhood, even while living at a distance for an extended period of time. The book, then, dialogues with transnational family studies that consider the significance and continuity of family relationships in the process of migration. My investigation is framed by a qualitative methodological framework that includes a multi-sited ethnography at participant houses, biographical interviews and diaries. Fieldwork was carried out in the UK and in Brazil over 21 months, including thirty biographical interviews at the participants' houses in both locations, and seven daily diaries, reporting the Brazilian women migrants' daily interaction with their family members in Brazil. My analysis considers the process of ritualization of family life and the creation and recreation of family (in daily, weekly, monthly or annual events, or during the life-course). I show that ritualizing as a family involves a set of activities heavily encoded with symbolic and affective meanings as well as some constraints which can influence the capacity and opportunity to practise them. I conclude that the process of ritualization of family practices done by the Brazilian transnational families in this study was especially important for them, in order to (re)constitute their sense of familyhood at a distance.

Since 2014 she has been working as researcher in the Brazilian International Migration Observatory (OBMigra), at University of Brasília (Brazil). She has taken part in many research projects about migration in Brazil and the UK. In the UK, she worked to University of Oxford as a researcher in the Brazilian research team, on a research project named THEMIS (Theorizing the Evolution of European Migration Systems). She participated in several surveys held by GEB (Brazilian Research Group in the UK), which mapped Brazilian migrant profiles, difficulties and labour trajectories. In Brazil, she participated in research projects about Haitians in Brazil, funded by IOM (International Organization for Migration) and Brazilian Labour Ministry and about Cuban doctors in Brazil, funded by PAHO (Pan American Health Organization). Her main areas of research are Brazilian migration, transnational families, care and migration policies. Her more recent book publication includes Critical Dictionary of International Migration (2017) and articles about Haitian Immigrants in the Brazilian Labour Market (2017) and Brazilian political transnationalism: the role of migrants in development of migration policies (2016).
