Gender relationships in europe at the turn of the millenium: women as subjects in migration and marriage.

Objective

The study will consider how women are becoming subjects of their lives in two crucial fields of action and relationship, i.e. East-West migration and marriage, therefore including the study of women-men relationships. The research aims at understanding recent and ongoing changes in women's life strategies and their imaginaries (subjectivity) as well as in relationships between women (inter-subjectivity) in a European context. The approach combines theoretical, historical and juridical disciplinary competences in gender studies. Great relevance will be given to oral testimonies as a way of evidencing forms of subjectivity, and to explore the elaboration of individual strategies. The partners are chosen in such a way as to represent the North, South, East and West of Europe.
