Resumen

GONZALVEZ TORRALBO, Herminia. Transnational families, a tautology?  Beyond the dichotomy geographical distance /proximity. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.43, pp.511-532. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682016000100024.

This article’s main objective is to provide clarity about what we understand when we talk about “transnational”, regarding migrant families. To do so, we highlight those works that show the practices and meanings given to the positions of gender and kinship inside the transnational family. The goal is to look at the transnational aspect inside the family, beyond the dichotomy “geographical proximity/distance”, but looking at the tensions between biology and the election of family relations which are impacted by migration. As a result, this article points out that the transnational, in relation with the definitions of “transnational family” is, in many occasions, a tautology because what comes first is the biologicistic glance of the relations of kinship, which are attributed to the wish or the obligation of keeping in touch.

Palabras clave : Transnational family; kinship; gender; migration; geographical distance.
