Families, Intimacy and Globalization Floating Ties by Raelene Wilding

This book examines the traditional ways of conceptualising family and explores how increased mobility, migration and changes in technology and culture caring from afar or transnational partnerships. It takes a cutting edge look at a longstanding topic of teaching.

About the Author

Raelene Wilding is Associate Professor of Sociology at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. Her research explores the experiences and practices of transnational families across the life-course and across a range of migration categories, from skilled to humanitarian migrants. She has a particular interest in the circulation of care and support across national and cultural borders, and the uses of new media to maintain relationships. Her previous books include Families Caring Across Borders (Palgrave, with Baldassar and Baldock) and Race and Ethnic Relations (OUP, with Fozdar and Hawkins).
