Contouring Gender and Intergenerational Care Relationships in Transnational Families

Zusammenfassung

Transnational care-giving includes but is not limited to transnational parenting, as it often entails care for extended family members, encompassing broader kin ties and social networks across generations. Using a feminist perspective, this paper explores the nature, modalities, frequency, implications and gender patterns in trasnational and intergenerational care provision through a case study of immigrant men and women in Atlantic Canada (Halifax). While providing care across borders is not an exclusively female activity, the gendered social construction of care-giving and the gendered social construction of migration and labour imply that men and women provide care transnationally in gender-specific ways.
