Week 13: Migration, Remmittances, and Relations

This week's readings focus on the economics of migration--both looking at money that migrants send to one another (remittances) and the money that makes money off of migration. Thinking about the stories in the readings, how does money mediate migration? How do remittances mediate/transform/shape relations? How does love, relationships, kinship intertwine with money in these stories?
