Title Bodily experiences and community-creating implications of transnational travel
Author(s) Povrzanovic Frykman, Maja
Date 2003
Editor(s) Frykman, Jonas; Gilje, Nils
English abstract
The author argues for central importance of fieldwork in ethnological/anthropological understandings of transnational practices and their implications, and discusses some methodological concerns. The embodied geography of physical distances and national borders is just one element of transnational individuals’ and groups’ identification processes. Nevertheless, it is central to ethnographic accounts on the multiple and often burdensome experiences of connecting places. Such accounts are indispensable in the joint interdisciplinary effort of locating and historicizing transnationalism from below, in order to promote it as a useful scholarly concept.
