    A sociocultural psychology of repeated mobility: dialogical challenges
    In this paper, we propose a sociocultural psychology of the lifecourse to examine the extreme case of families living in repeated international mobility. In this case, mobility is motivated by work, which leads to repeated relocation of housing and occupational arrangements across countries. Based on fieldwork, we highlight three challenges of repeated mobility and discuss their implications within sociocultural psychology., En este artículo proponemos una psicología sociocultural del curso de la vida para analizar el caso extremo de familias que viven en movilidad internacional repetida. En este caso, la movilidad está motivada por el trabajo, lo que da lugar a una relocalización reiterada de vivienda y acuerdos ocupacionales a través de distintos países. Basándonos en un trabajo de campo, destacamos tres desafíos que presenta la movilidad repetida y abordamos sus implicaciones en el campo de la psicología sociocultural.

    A Sociocultural Approach to Mobile Families: A Case Study
    (2019) ; ;
    Cangià, Flavia
    This paper proposes a sociocultural perspective of mobility, of which migration is only one case, with a focus on mobile families. Consistent with mobility studies, sociocultural psychology of the lifecourse proposes to study both the sociocultural conditions of mobility, and the perspective of mobile people. In addition, in this article, we consider interrelated lives in mobility. We discuss the specific case of one family documented as part of a larger research project on repeated geographical mobility, and highlight the specificities of the context, the experiences of each family member, and some of their overlapping spheres of experiences. We thus hope to document the life of such families, but also to provide theoretical directions for the psychological study of mobility.

    Family, Boundaries and Transformation. The International Mobility of Professionals and Their Families
    Two dominant images of migrant professionals, also known as “expats”, have long been common, in the social sciences: on the one hand, they were described as super-mobile individuals, who easily move between places with no time frame in mind, with the openness to engage with diversity; on the other hand, more recent studies challenged the idea of “expat” cosmopolitanism, and investigated the boundaries constituted by these people in the course of their everyday life. The present paper brings to the fore the complexity of these individuals’ and their families’ experiences of international mobility from a combined socio-cultural psychological and sociological perspective. We draw on qualitative research conducted in Switzerland in order to reflect on the role of family in the way these people make sense of diversity across time and space, make and un-make symbolic boundaries between themselves and others, and understand their own and their familiars' transformation.
