US-based professor of geography Geraldine Pratt’s project combines theoretical debates on gender, mothering and labour migration and feminist methodological discussions about different forms of storytelling with long-term fieldwork gathering the stories of Filipino families who have reunited in Canada after many years apart. Pratt’s project contributes to feminist debates on migration and labour in several ways. In Chapters 1 and 2, she offers an analysis that locates the LCP-and the way in which it shapes and conditions the subject positions of Filipino workers and Canadian employers-within the neo-liberal projects of both the Canadian and Filipino states.

The outcome of Geraldine Pratt’s collaboration with the Philippine Women Centre of British Columbia, this study documents the difficulties of family separation and the problems that children have when they reunite with their mothers in Vancouver. Aimed at those who have lived this experience, those who directly benefit from it, and those who simply stand by and watch, Families Apart shows how Filipino migrant domestic workers—often mothers themselves—are caught between competing neoliberal policies of sending and receiving countries and how, rather than paying rich returns, their ambitions as migrants often result in social and economic exclusion for themselves and for their children. This argument takes shape as an open-ended series of encounters, moving between a singular academic voice and the “we” of various research collaborations, between Vancouver and the Philippines, and between genres of “evidence-based” social scientific research, personal testimony, theatrical performance, and nonfictional narrative writing.

Through these experiments with different modes of storytelling, Pratt seeks to transform frameworks of perception, to create and collect sympathetic witnesses—in short, to promote a wide-ranging public discussion and debate about a massive worldwide shift in family (and nonfamily) relations of intimacy and care.
