Summary
  • Mobile Childhoods in Filipino Transnational Families focuses on the lived experiences of '1.5-generation' migrants with similar 'roots' (the Philippines), traversing different 'routes' (receiving countries). By shedding light on the diversified paths of their migratory lives, it revisits the relationships between mobility, sociality and identity
  • "[...] a welcome contribution to the expanding literature on children and migration. [...] The volume effectively captures the diverse routes to migration, incorporation and transnational belongings of the 1.5-generation Filipinos in various contexts. Based mostly on ethnographic material, the book provides rich and kaleidoscopic portraits of this distinct demographic and sociological population as it navigates departures, reunions and life transitions in the Philippines and beyond." - Maruja Asis, Scalabrini Migration Center, Philippines "Rare is a book that provides such detailed, comparative accounts of children's migratory pathways across varying international contexts. By exploring the experiences of 1.5 generation Filipino migrants occupying an impressive array of transnational spaces, this volume sheds much needed light on how young people uniquely experience family migration projects. Here we learn not only about the importance of context - -the types of communities and families children leave and arrive to during migration - -but also how children actively negotiate these contexts in an increasingly globalized world." - Joanna Dreby, University at Albany SUNY, USA "This volume highlights a little-explored aspect of migration studies: children's experiences of growing up in two nations. Beautifully framed within contemporary migration studies, it adds methodological brilliance by comparing the experiences of children from the Philippines who have moved to six distinct new contexts. Looking across a range of situations and experiences and attending to variations in the social, cultural and historical contexts of mobility, the authors reveal both children's agency and the shaping effects of larger contextual forces." - Marjorie Faulstich Orellana, University of California, Los Angeles, USA"Through ethnographic case studies and comparative analysis, Mobile Childhoods in Filipino Transnational Families explores childhoods spanning migrant children's places of origin in the Philippines as well as migration destinations abroad. The volume challenges the dominant adult-centric approach in migration studies that views children as either left-behinds in their country of origin, or as second-generation immigrants in their parents' migration destination. By showing how the children act in the light of the varying opportunities and constraints that they encounter the book makes a significant contribution to research on migration and to our understanding of contemporary childhood." - Karen Fog Olwig, University of Copenhagen, Denmark "Mobile Childhoods takes the readers across the Philippine diaspora to provide an important bird's eye view on the experiences of the 1.5 generation vis a vis schools, labor market and families. Providing a global perspective, it takes us to countries as varied as Australia, Canada, Japan and Italy to show us the integration of migrant children across different racial ethnic contexts. This volume significantly advances our understanding of migration in a global society." - Rhacel Salazar Parrenas, University of Southern California, USA
