Changing Gender Representations in Politics of Belonging: A Critical Analysis of Developments in Switzerland

Fischer, Carolin ; Dahinden, Janine

(nccr on the move ; 6)

The literature increasingly recognises the importance of gender in defining the boundaries between national societies and migrants. But little is still known about the history and changes of mechanisms that shape the role of gender as category of difference. Based on a historical case study of Switzerland this paper examines how gender is implicated in the politics of migrant admission and...

The car, the hammer and the cables under the tables: Intersecting masculinities and social class in a Swiss vocational school

Moret, Joëlle ; Duemmler, Kierstin ; Dahinden, Janine

Based on ethnographic material, this article explores how three groups of apprentices negotiate masculinities in the specific setting of a male-dominated vocational school in Switzerland dedicated to the building trades. We use an intersectional and relational perspective to highlight how the institutional setting of the school – mirroring wider social hierarchies – influences these young...

Transnational mobility among early-career academics: gendered aspects of negotiations and arrangements within heterosexual couples

Schaer, Martine ; Dahinden, Janine ; Toader, Alina

(Working Papers MAPS ; 7)

Today, transnational mobility is often presented as indispensable for a successful academic career. This institutionalisation of transnational mobility for young academics has important effects in (re)producing or transforming gender inequalities. Building on the results of a qualitative study conducted at three universities – Zurich (Switzerland), UCLA (USA), and Cambridge (UK) – this paper...

A plea for the ‘de-migranticization' of research on migration and integration

Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2016, p. 1

Migration and integration research has been institutionalized over the last few decades. However, an increasing number of voices has been calling for more reflexivity, criticizing the nation-state- and ethnicity-centred epistemology that often informs this discipline. Consistently with this line of reasoning, I argue that migration and integration research originates in a historically...

Disentangling Religious, Ethnic and Gendered Contents in Boundary Work: How Young Adults Create the Figure of ‘The Oppressed Muslim Woman’

Dahinden, Janine ; Duemmler, Kerstin ; Moret, Joëlle

In: Journal of Intercultural Studies, 2014, vol. 35, no. 4, p. 329-348

The binary opposition between ‘equal European women’ and ‘oppressed Muslim women’ has become a powerful representation in Switzerland and throughout Europe. Yet little is empirically known about the mechanisms through which actors in their everyday lives (re)produce this prominent construction. In this mixed-method study with young adults in a French-speaking Swiss Canton, we explore how...

"Kultur" als Form symbolischer Gewalt: Grenzziehungsprozesse im Kontext von Migration am Beispiel der Schweiz

Dahinden, Janine

In: Kultur, Gesellschaft, Migration. Studien zur Migrations- und Integrationspolitik, 2014, p. 97-121

Die Schweiz gilt international als Modell eines gelungenen Multikulturalismus, dann nämlich wenn es das Zusammenleben der vier Sprachgruppen (Romands, DeutschschweizerInnen, TessinerInnen, RäteromanInnen) betrifft. Ein sprachlicher wie auch religiöser Pluralismus ist und war stets ein Grundbaustein des Selbstverständnisses der „Willensnation“ Schweiz. Geht es aber um MigrantInnen...
