9 – 10 February 2017. Workshop on Cross-Border Marriages at the University of Neuchatel
Cross-Border Marriages: Intersecting Boundaries in Transnational Social Spaces
9 – 10 February 2017, University of Neuchatel
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Espace Louis-Agassiz 1, Room R.E.46
Marriage is one of those practices that increasingly occur in transnational spaces. For the past few years, there has been a growing interest among social scientists to analyze the motivations, practices and constraints inherent in this form of transnationalization. At the same time, cross-border marriage has become an important topic in immigration countries, particularly when it involves migrants from non-European countries. This workshop discusses cross-border marriages in the light of the social and symbolic boundaries that are built upon, contested, produced or maintained.
