SANTOS JUNIOR, Jaime; THIBES, Mariana Zanata  e  MENEZES, Marilda Aparecida de. Disjunctions and ambivalences: Northeastern migrant families at São Paulo's ABC. Civitas, Rev. Ciênc. Soc. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.3, pp.675-691.  Epub 27-Jan-2020. ISSN 1984-7289.

This article focuses on two targets. At first, in a more theoretical dimension, it aims to extract analytical consequences from the junction of three variables: families, work and migrations. Although its priority over other variables is not claimed here, the assumption is that the intersecting zone that emerge when we work with these three variables constitute a fruitful analytical “place” for the analysis of life course. In a second moment, we discuss the processes of generational transmission in order to understand the ways in which life strategies are elaborated, lived and transmitted from one generation to another. For this purpose, we took two cases of migrant's families trajectories from the northeastern of Brazil who live in ABC Paulista observing the generational cut. The research took place between the years 2014-2016 and carried out biographical interviews with members of families that has in common, besides the migration trajectory, the insertion of some of its members in industries of the region. The results suggest the centrality of the “family” as a collective project to “improve life”.
