Immigrant mothers crossing borders: nomadic identities and multiple belongings in early childhood education

Author

Abstract
In a small-scale study we analyse the narratives of three recently-arrived immigrant mothers with young children, making use of child care. Drawing on post-foundational theories and third-wave feminism, the analysis of these narratives enables us to look at how issues of diversity, democracy and citizenship are shaped in micro-events of daily practice. The study shows how reciprocity may be shaped in what is fundamentally an asymmetrical relationship between child care staff and parents. In turn, this reciprocity facilitates the construction of nomadic or hybrid identities by these mothers, crossing several borders. Finally the study illustrates the importance of careful transitions between the home and the family and the interrelationships between public and private domains.
