Abstract

MACHADO, Igor José de Renó. Kinship and differentialities: alternatives to identity and to ethnic frontiers in the study of migrations. Vibrant, Virtual Braz. Anthr. [online]. 2011, vol.8, n.2, pp. 220-235. ISSN 1809-4341.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1809-43412011000200010.

Based on work undertaken by the Laboratory of Migratory Studies, focused on research in the Valadares region of Minas Gerais State and on studies about the Japanese presence in Brazil, I sought to discuss alternatives to approaches that focus on the binomial identity-ethnic borders. The development of another perspective, critical of the concept of identity, arose at the interlacing of the relationships between migration and kinship with a perspective influenced by the work of Tim Ingold.

Keywords : migration; Japanese; kinship.
