Paternità emigrata, transnazionale, ritrovata: in conversazione con la comunità bangladese di Firenze
- human mobility,
- father-child relationship
What relationships are being established between fatherhood and human mobility? How the paths of these two social realities intersect, and what mutual influences may derive from? And what if these dynamics happen to be incorporated into a transnational dimension between Bangladesh and Italy? Starting from these possible questions, this paper aims at analysing the topic of emigrated, transnational, and eventually regained fatherhood, against family reunifications within the Bangladeshi community of Florence. From this perspective, the reflection lays particular emphasis on the experience of separation and reunification in the context of transnational migrations, on the resultant father-child relationship, and the impact that the phenomenon of transnational parenthood may produce upon educational relationships and practices in family.
