VR pengar till CERGU forskare

I november 2018 fick Katarzyna Wojnicka, tillsammans med P.I. Ulf Mellström och medarbetare Andreas Henriksson, och Andrea Priori, 4,27 Mkr beviljad av Vetenskapsrådet. Deras projekt heter "Transnationella singelmän. En etnografi om singelskap bland migrerade män i Europeiska Unionen". Projektet pågår i tre år och administreras av CERGU i Göteborg. Läs en sammanfattning av projecktet nedan (på engelska). Stort grattis!

Transnational bachelorhood denotes the situation of single men that have migrated and become part of transnational networks of family, kin and friends. Although often represented as ‘dangerous foreign masculinities’, and although characterising a significant portion of migrants, this bachelorhood is an under-researched aspect of transnational migration. The project will investigate four groups of transnational bachelors using a multi-sited ethnographic approach: Bangladeshis and Romanians in Italy and Syrians and Poles in Sweden. The aim is to investigate and analyse the situation of these men, particularly as it pertains to belonging, transnational families, mobility and masculinity. The project is informed by an intersectional approach to space and masculinity and by a transnational perspective on family relations.The groups we investigate vary in regards to factors identified as significant for transnational bachelorhood; for example, they come from both within and without the European Union and have arrived in countries with different attitudes to migration. A comparison of these groups will allow for a more general and complex picture of transnational bachelorhood.
