About this product
- DescriptionPakistani migrant families in Denmark find themselves in a specific eth-national, post-9/11 environment where Muslim immigrants are subjected to processes of n-recognition, exclusion and securitization. This ethgraphic study explores how, why, and at what costs tions of relatedness, identity, and belonging are being renegotiated within local families and transnational kinship networks. Each entry point concerns the destructive - productive constitution of family life, where neglected responsibilities, obligations, and trust lead t only to broken relationships, but also, and inevitably, to the invative creation of new ones. By connecting the micro-politics of the migrant family with the macro-politics of the nation state and global conjunctures in general, the book argues that securitization and suspicion - launched in the name of integration - escalate internal community dynamics and processes of family upheaval in unpredicted ways.
- Author BiographyMikkel Rytter is Assistant Professor in the Department of Culture and Society at Aarhus University where he is affiliated with the research program on contemporary ethnography and part of a cross-disciplinary project on Sufism and Transnational spirituality.
