Abstract:

"In Peruvian Lives across Borders, M. Cristina Alcalde examines the evolution of belonging and the making of home among middle- and upper-class Peruvians in Peru, the United States, Canada, and Germany. Alcalde draws on interviews, surveys, participant observation, and textual analysis to argue that to belong is to exclude. To that end, transnational Peruvians engage in both subtle and direct policing along the borders of belonging. These acts allow them to claim and maintain the social status they enjoyed in their homeland even as they profess their openness and tolerance. Alcalde details these processes and their origins in Peru's gender, racial, and class hierarchies. As she shows, the idea of return "whether desired or rejected, imagined or physical "spurs constructions of Peruvianness, belonging, and home. Deeply researched and theoretically daring, Peruvian Lives across Borders answers fascinating questions about an understudied group of migrants"--

"How is belonging to nation and home inflected both by privilege and marginalization across borders? What identities and constructions of home are at stake in the process of inclusion and exclusion embodied by transnational Peruvians? Employing return as a critical lens, Paradoxes of Belonging: Transnational Peruvians, Exclusion, and Home examines processes of belonging and home-making specifically among middle and upper class transnational Peruvians in Peru, the United States, Canada, and Germany. This book includes both Peruvians who have returned to Lima with the intent of permanently living there and those who reject the possibility of a permanent return. At its core, this multi-sited study argues that to belong is to exclude, and that transnational middle and upper class Peruvians both directly experience and engage in subtle and more direct policing of borders of belonging. A multifaceted approach to return as desired, rejected, imagined, and physical brings to the forefront evolving constructions of and meanings associated with Peruvianness, belonging, and home"--
