9780817317430: Mieres Reborn: The Reinvention of a Catalan Community
Críticas:

"A village of less than 1,000 people in the Pyrenees foothills generally evokes nostalgic themes in Catalan identity as well as in anthropological perspectives. Yet, by carefully teasing apart complex changes and contexts through decades of memories and engaged fieldwork, Robertson (emer., social anthropology, Univ. of California, Santa Barbara) provides a rich ethnography that challenges reductionist models of tradition, European rural life, continental development, and anthropology as a field. The author brings Mieres to life through both pictorial detail and social investigation, as fairs give way to swap meets and celebrations lose older markers but incorporate new members and memberships within a shifting tension of rural autonomy, global markets, and metropolitan claims on "bedroom villages." This book--equally insightful with memories of repression and division during and after the Civil War ("miseria") and with descriptions of contemporary "hippies," cell phones, and transnationalism--becomes a human, accessible text for students both in its evocation of people, lifeways, interpretations, and futures in this small but complicated village, and in its sense of the anthropologist as knowledgeable participant observer. A welcome addition--and challenge--to European studies bridging processes and memories in the 21st century. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries."--"CHOICE"

Críticas:

""M""ieres Reborn" is quite a remarkable and subtle portrait, intimately presented, of village life in Mieres. It is gracefully written."--James C. Scott, author of "Weapons of the Weak: Everyday Forms of Peasant Resistance"

Descripción The University of Alabama Press, United States, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 168 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Mieres Reborn reveals how patient observation and an analysis of one small community have much to tell us about human progress more generally.Not long ago Mieres, a village in the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees, seemed destined to die. As in countless thousands of rural communities around the world, young people in Mieres over the years have moved to the towns and cities, leaving behind abandoned fields and meadows, derelict houses, and their aging and disconsolate parents and grandparents.Close observation of this social microcosm over two decades reveals the capacity of ordinary people in a locality to reinvent themselves, reconstruct relationships with the wider world, and confront new threats to their collective survival. A. F. Robertson describes how the determination that Mieres should survive is most evident in a vigorous round of fiestas, fairs, and other public events in which natives, exiles, and newcomers work to create a lively sense of belonging. Since the 1980s, Mieres has been enlivened by a reverse flow of migrants from the cities, new settlers who have brought an infusion of youth to the community, devised new livelihoods, revitalized the village school, energized the native Mierencs, and provided the impetus for a rediscovery of historical roots and political identity.The regeneration of life in the countryside, in part a reaction to urban expansion and decay, is a global phenomenon of increasing political, economic, and social significance.
