Ethnographies of children and youth who migrate and are affected by the migration of others


When people -- whether children, youth, and adults -- migrate, that migration is often perceived as a rupture, with people separated by great distances and for extended periods of time. But for migrants and those affected by migration, the everyday persists, and migration itself may be critical to the continuation of social life. Everyday Ruptures illuminates the wide-ranging continuities and disruptions in the experiences of children around the world, those who participate in and those who are affected by migration.


The book is organized around four themes:

- how children's agency is affected by institutions, families, and beliefs

- how families and individuals create and maintain kin ties in conditions of rupture

- how emotion and affect are linked to global divisions and flows

- how the actions of states create ruptures and continuities
