Korean Wild Geese Families, A New Trend of Transnational Migration: Split Household Strategies and Gender Dynamics

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



Abstract:

In the era of globalization, an increasing number of middle-class families use transnational “split household” (Glenn 1983) strategies to enhance their overall well-being. Among various middle-class migrant families that use transnational split household strategies, my paper focuses on Korean “wild geese families,” one of the newest but rapidly increasing patterns. The research question of my paper is: how do the spousal relations and parenting practices of Korean wild geese couples change during their migration process? Since wild geese families are in sharp contrast to the typical working-class transnational families in important respects, my paper on Korean wild geese families provides a valuable opportunity to better understand how the gender dynamics of transnational migrant couples can be differently shaped and re-negotiated based on the goal of migration, the leader of migration, the direction of remittances, and the legal and class positions of migrants. Moreover, my paper addresses two important but often overlooked issues by studies in migration and gender: the transnational division of labor between spouses and transnational fathering of middle-class migrant families. Therefore, my paper on Korean wild geese families is expected to advance knowledge of and a balanced perspective on the rapidly increasing but underexplored transnational middle-class families in the U.S.
