W cieniu europejskiej twierdzy - ebook/pdf
Magdalena Brzezińska-17%
Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
Książka przedstawia marzenia Afrykanów o emigracji do Europy, ich aspiracje do nowoczesności i wyobrażenia o życiu w zachodniej Europie, a także wpływ tych marzeń na ich codzienną egzystencję. Z perspektywy antropologicznej autorka analizuje nastawienie mieszkańców Gwinei Bissau do europejskich wartości i norm kulturowych (takich jak indywidualizm, monogamia czy równouprawnienie), strategie migracyjne w obliczu europejskiej twierdzy i wiarę w metafizyczne sposoby przeniknięcia przez unijną granicę. Podstawą pracy są badania etnograficzne prowadzone przez Magdalenę Brzezińską w Gwinei Bissau w latach 2003, 20102011 i 2016. Autorka rozpatruje źródła opisywanych zjawisk w odniesieniu do upadku kolonializmu, oddziaływania ideologii rozwoju i dzisiejszej globalizacji. Publikacja stanowi ważny przyczynek do zrozumienia afrykańskich imigrantów, licznie przybywających dziś do Europy. The book, based on anthropological fieldwork in Guinea-Bissau, explores the perception of the West by Africans. The West, or Europe, plays a dominant role in the collective imagination of Guineans. Migration to Europe is a common dream as its image is idealized. In contrast to much of the recent optimistic literature on globalisation, the author draws attention to cultural domination, a symbolic power of the image of the West.
