Transnational families: Gender and Education
Sara Fürstenau, Glaucia de Oliveira Assis
How are educational opportunities connected to gendered labour markets (e.g. care work, construction, gastronomy) and to gendered social networks of support? In which way are knowledge, ideas and representations around education shared among social networks? To which extent do they stimulate transnational educational aspirations?
To answer these questions, this study explores educational orientations and strategies in transnational families and social networks between Brazil and Germany.
