Project Description

This project explores the interrelationships between immigration, personal and family identity, and motherhood in contemporary Australia. It explores how motherhood is influenced by changes in the community structures, the organization of domestic and paid work, and communication systems, and elucidates how the practices of parenting are influenced by the social, cultural and political contexts of global and local society as well as specific migration histories. The project is innovative methodologically and in its application of the frameworks of social capital and transnationalism as a means to understand the interrelationships of migration and motherhood.
