Vintilă Horia and Trans-Temporal Travel

Abstract

The Romanian-born European writer Vintilă Horia - whose birth centenary is celebrated this year - was a genuine searcher of truth. His entire work pleads for transgressive-integrating knowledge, in opposition to binary logic and scientism; it is the privileged space of articulation between cognition, creation and gnosis, between the apophatism of science, mystic apofatism and artistic apofatism. Although much less known than the trilogy of exile - Dieu est né en exil (1960), Le chevalier de la résignation (1961) and ¡Perseguid a Boecio! (1983) - the small-sized novel Le voyage à San Marcos (1972) acts as an exemplary attestation to this pompous conjunction. The current article focuses especially on the text’s trans-temporal valence

Temporal And Generational Impact On Identity, Home(Land) And Politics Of Belonging Among The Kurdish Diaspora

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to examine the experiences of two generations among the Kurdish diaspora in Sweden: those who migrated as adults and those who were born and/or raised in Sweden. The focus will be on issues of identity, home(land) and politics of belonging with regard to generational and temporal aspects. We will argue that there are significant differences among the older and younger generations with regard to their experiences that demand different theoretical and analytical conceptualisations

Parents in the Migratory Space Between Past, Present and Future:
The everyday impact of intergenerational dynamics on refugee families’ resettlement in Denmark

Abstract

This article explores the everyday experiences of resettlement among newly recognised refugee parents living in rural Denmark. Comparing two ethnographic case stories, it enquires into the ways in which the parents try to create a sense of belonging and pursue life coherence and a positive outlook on the future within the everyday sociocultural framework of the Danish welfare state. It is argued that they mostly comprehend and carry out their strivings for a better future by means of a narratively grounded, intergenerational rationale. This rationale invites them to assess the success of the family’s entire act of migration in terms of what the future promises for their children. This article thus illuminates and crystallises how among newly recognised refugee families, mundane intergenerational dynamics form a crucial relational and temporal factor with regard to the parents’ building of existential well-being, societal trust and aspirations for ‘integration’ into the Danish welfare society.

Fateful Well-Being:
Childhood and Youth Transitions Among Latvian Women in Finland

Abstract

In this article we investigate what happens to the children who are brought to a new country along with their parents, and how they, now young adults, narrate the ‘self’ as a migrant child and adolescent in different temporal and spatial contexts. We draw on five long narrative interviews with young women who were born in Latvia and came to Finland during their childhood. For our analysis of these narratives, we coin a notion of ‘fateful well-being’. The research participants’ challenges as child migrants, where geographical displacement was compounded by language changes and discontinuities in schooling, as well as ruptures with family members and friends, are revalued and appropriated through the self-development skills of reflexive narration. Within the concept of fateful well-being, youth transitions involve both constrained agency and choices towards well-being. We argue that reconciling difficulties is a vital part of fateful well-being.

Peer-Led Care Practices and ‘Community’ Formation in British Retirement Migration

Abstract

This article uses ethnography of British retirement migration in Spain to explore how care practices among migrant peers operationalize ‘community’ in place. Social, economic and political transformations, including shrinking welfare state provision, family at a distance and marketized care, have generated care deficits. I show how peer-led care practices help mediate these deficits, assisting individuals in ‘getting by’ and providing safeguards against exploitation, while constituting some sense of ‘community’ as well as personal meaning in liquid contexts. However, I show how temporal, spatial and social limitations render this community fragile and exclusive, while practices aimed at mediating between family, state and market, set boundaries of responsibility. Nevertheless, I argue for critical reflection on the potential of these emerging peer-led welfare architectures especially in the contexts of heightened mobility, austerity, transnationalism and an ageing population.
