Resumo

Este artigo questiona representações genéricas e homogeneizantes do ‘migrante’ ao fornecer um exame das maneiras multivalentes pelas quais as diferenças sociais contornam os processos de migração. Os estudiosos da migração geralmente reproduzem tipologias genéricas e homogeneizantes dos ‘migrantes’, um exemplo são as duas analogias opostas entre o migrante ‘do Sul Global’ (‘o migrante transnacional’, que flui através das redes sociais do Sul Global ao Norte desenvolvido, buscando ganhos econômicos) e o migrante ‘do Norte Global’ (‘o migrante do estilo de vida’, que escolhe migrar de países desenvolvidos para locais que acreditam oferecer o potencial de uma melhor qualidade de vida). Através do exame das jornadas de brasileiros em Londres, este artigo chama a atenção às conexões e aos contextos das sociedades de envio e recebimento, bem como a diversidade existente entre a população brasileira no exterior. Como é argumentado neste artigo, essa análise permite uma melhor compreensão de como as experiências desses brasileiros em Londres são modelados diretamente pela interseção de vários marcadores sociais, resultando no que chamo de “jornadas diferenciadas”. Esses brasileiros navegam em diferentes níveis de restrições e reformulam constantemente suas jornadas devido à classe, gênero, nacionalidade e status documental. Isso nos permite enquadrar experiências migratórias além de representações genéricas e homogeneizantes. A pesquisa empírica combina uma etnografia de 18 meses em locais de lazer e 33 entrevistas em profundidade com brasileiros em Londres.
