Location: Hörsaal 41 (Main Building)
RC06 Family Research (host committee)

Language: English

This session welcomes papers that examine the relationship of nannies who work in a host company taking care of elders or children while at the same time maintaining ties with their own families in their country of origin. Papers that examine the impact of family relationships as a result of transnational migration, including discussion and analyses of generational relationships, are encouraged. Papers that examine the economic impact of remissions are also encouraged. The relationships and support networks and the formation of communities by these nannies in the host country is also of particular interest.
