Connecting Sentiments, Separating Worlds: New Media and Transnational
Families in the Colombian Context
Maria Angel, UCL

My project aims to establish an account of the digital practices
between transnational parents and the children they leave behind and
how these practices alter the ways they express emotions and
communicate at distance. These methods of communication, in turn,
affect how the parents construct and frame their new experiences and
their existing familial relationship. This project bridges many areas
of Anthropology. In this instance, I must establish semiotic patterns
for these channels of digital communication, as they are essential in
the construction of ideas of self, identity and the way that a person
reflects upon their emotional life. It is also an interdisciplinary
study, which integrates Social anthropology; New Media; Migration and
Transnationalism; Colombia's Kinship; Anthropology of Childhood;
Anthropology of emotions. This study will compare and develop their
work to establish a new theory of emotions through the digital age.

See you there!
