Managing «Difference» in Eastern-European Transnational Families

Edited By Viorela Ducu and Áron Telegdi-Csetri

Studies in this book have been gathered on the occasion of two academic events in the field of Transnational Families, focusing on the Eastern-European space, from a – diversified – qualitative social research perspective. The volume places a special emphasis on a gendered and practice-oriented approach, exploring territories of domination and empowerment that inform the negotiation of difference. Studies follow processes of emancipation, family practices, redistribution of gendered roles, forms of abuse, social remittance, confrontation between rights and cultures, forming joint action strategies and egalitarian capital, in a process of emergence of new social actors. Studies reflect back upon the ambiguity of conceptual frameworks to be put to use while approaching this yet unexplored area.

Gendered Work-Family Balance in Migration: Albanian Migrants in Greece1

Abstract This paper explores how Albanian migrant working parents in Greece experience the pressure to balance their family life and work demands. Relying on 42 migrant biographies, we look particularly at the gendered negotiation of work and family conflicts, and how particularly our transnational mothers expand the concept of “hegemonic mothering”.
