Autoethnographic Reflections of White Privilege in Migratory Experiences of Privileged Migrants.

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The central question of why migration is predominantly a non-white phenomenon and why white people are not categorised as migrants in dominant discourses has only been partially addressed. Scholarship in migration studies has had a tendency to ‘study down’ and focus on non-white migrants, categorised as economic migrants, asylum seekers and refugees. This research aims to ‘study up’ and explore the phenomenon of white migration addressing the invisibility of privileged migration. This allows the dominant narrative to be challenged that characterises non-white groups as migrants and renders whites exempt from examination. This study aims to explore the centrality of white identities and how this impacts dominant discourses in migration (Frankenberg 1993; Dyer 1997; Garner 1997; Alcoff 2015). This research focuses on migration to Sao Paulo, Brazil as a geopolitical setting which is open to skilled workers of the global north.
