The multiethnic and multilinguistic character of Switzerland has represented a puzzle for major scholars on European nationalism since the nineteenth century. Research shows that this multiethnicity is a pivotal element of pride and central to the common Swiss imaginary of a “nation of will,” which embraces local, cantonal, and linguistic identities. In parallel, this particular case of...

Fischer, Carolin ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnicities, 2017, vol. 17, no. 4, p. 445-468

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 critical case study of Switzerland, this article examines how gender is implicated in the politics of migrant admission and...

Transnationalism reloaded: the historical trajectory of a concept

Dahinden, Janine

In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2017, vol. 40, no. 9, p. 1474-1485

In this commentary, I discuss the importance of Portes, Guarnizo and Landolt’s article, focusing on three specific points. First, I argue that this 1999 article represented a turning point in transnational migration studies, in that it made it possible to address important weaknesses in this field of study. Second, I reflect on the article’s lack of reference to the nation-state and its power...

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

Dahinden, Janine

In: Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2017, vol. 43, no. 8, p. 1292-1307

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 (U.S.A), and Cambridge (UK) – this...

Gehören wir dazu? Grenzziehungsprozesse und Positionierungen der zweiten Generation im Vergleich zwischen Luzern und Neuchâtel

Duemmler, Kerstin ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Revue Suisse de sociologie (Swiss Journal of Sociology, Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Soziologie), 2016, vol. 42, no. 2, p. 309-331

Rather than to examine the modes of integration of the second generation as is usually done, the article chooses to ask how the second generation position themselves vis-à-vis certain ethno-national boundaries and whether they feel that they belong. Based on interviews with young people of different origins, aged from 16 to 19 years and residing in the cantons of Lucerne and Neuchâtel, we...

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

In: European Journal of Sociology, 2017, vol. 58, no. 2, p. 265-293

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 men’s...
