9780801476877: Locating Migration: Rescaling Cities and Migrants

In this book Nina Glick Schiller and Ayse Çaglar, along with a stellar group of contributing authors, examine the relationship between migrants and cities in a time of massive urban restructuring. They find that locality matters in migration research and migrants matter in the reconfiguration of contemporary cities. This book provides a new approach to the study of migrant settlement and transnational connection in which cities rather than nation-states, ethnic groups, or transnational communities serve as the starting point for comparative analysis.

Neither negating nor privileging the nation-state, Locating Migration provides ethnographic insights into the various ways in which migrants and specific cities together mutually constitute and contest the local, national, and global. Cities are approached not as containers but as fluid and historically differentiated analytical entry points. Chapters explore migrants' relationship to the neoliberal rebranding, redevelopment, and rescaling of down-and-out, aspiring, and global cities in the United States and Europe. The various chapters document the pathways of incorporation and transnational connection of migrants from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe.

Migrants are approached not as a homogenous category but in terms of their range of experiences of class, racialization, gender, history, politics, and religion. Setting aside the migrant/native divide that haunts most migration studies, the authors of this book view migrants as residents of cities and actors within them, understanding that to be a resident of a city is to live within, contribute to, and contest globe-spanning processes that shape urban economy, politics, and culture.

Review:

"This excellent collection of essays, edited by two of the leading scholars in the field of migration, cities, and transnationality, challenges conventional orthodoxies to argue that migrants should be seen as city residents who shape local cultures, politics, and economies in significant ways. Through ethnographies of specific sites, the essays in this volume provide illuminating insights into the different lived experiences of migrants in cities across the world. Locating Migration is a must-read for anyone interested in the contemporary global city."―Sophie Watson, Open University



"Locating Migration: Rescaling Cities and Migrantsis an attempt to examine migrants as integral to cities through analyses of scale, space, and temporal phenomena in different places. The editors want tosteer the study of migrants away froma narrow focus that has isolated ethnic communities and theorize the important role that migrants have had in shaping and being shaped by cities and the scale issues related to cities.... This book would be useful for anyone teaching courses in international planning, immigration, and planning, and planning history and theory."―Elizabeth L. Sweet, Journal of Planning Education and Research (March 2014)



"Locating Migration is an excellent collective work showing how the particularities of cities collide with the dreams and aspirations of international migrants to shape varying paths to integration. It offers a wealth of specific city comparisons and the theoretical scaffolding to get the most traction out of those comparisons. A major accomplishment!"―Leo R. Chavez, author of The Latino Threat: Constructing Immigrants, Citizens, and the Nation

"In bringing together the often separated perspectives of migration and urban studies, Locating Migration challenges current paradigms and introduces an insightful comparative framework with which to analyze mutually transformative relations between the livelihoods of transnational migrants and the repositioning of cities of varying scales within a competitive global hierarchy. The authors' diverse anthropological and geographical approaches innovatively identify and interpret linkages between local and global social dynamics that spatially restructure urban life. The book provides innovative understandings of cities as the ever changing contexts for the lives of migrants."―Josh DeWind, Director, Migration Program, Social Science Research Council
