Marriage After Migration: An Ethnography of Money, Romance, and Gender in Globalizing Mexico (Issues of Globalization:Case Studies in Contemporary Anthropology)
Marriage After Migration tells the stories of five women in rural Mexico, each navigating the tricky terrain that is men's international migration. With their husbands and sons working in the United States, will the women be able to hold their families together? The women's lives reveal how marginalized people--including indigenous people--drive globalization. Their journeys show how globalization goes beyond economics to affect the underpinnings of a society and people's most intimate relationships. Author Nora Haenn illuminates dynamics otherwise overlooked in debates about globalization and migration. In relating how migration changes families and rewrites gender roles, Haenn draws upon twenty-five years of experience in Mexico. Her engaging writing style crystalizes for students from all backgrounds what it means not to move.
Marriage After Migration is a volume in the series ISSUES OF GLOBALIZATION: CASE STUDIES IN CONTEMPORARY ANTHROPOLOGY, which examines the experiences of individual communities in our contemporary world. Each volume offers a brief and engaging exploration of a particular issue arising from globalization and its cultural, political, and economic effects on certain peoples or groups.
