In this book seminar, Beatrice Zani presents her new book “Women Migrants in Southern China and in Taiwan. Mobilities, Digital Economies and Emotions”. The book explores the lives, the migratory experiences, and the social, economic, and emotional practices of Chinese migrant women during their migrations and mobilities in and between China and Taiwan.
Based on multi-sited ethnographic research in China and Taiwan, Zani illustrates and emphasises what it feels like for women migrants as they negotiate their way between subalternity and resistance, at the crossroad between subordinated labour and independent, digital entrepreneurship, and between an inegalitarian labour market and new, online opportunities for business and commerce.
Beatrice Zani will present the main arguments/findings in the book. The presentation will be followed by comments and panel discussion.
Lunch will be served.
