Résumé

This panel, organized in the framework of the 7th APA Congress (Portuguese Anthropology Association), aims to explore interactions between different social and ethnic groups in historically marginalized and currently gentrified neighborhoods and the changing policies and discourses regarding these spaces.

Presentation

Within the past decades, labor migrants from across the globe settled within lower-income neighborhoods across European cities, where they established their businesses and community centers. During this time, literary, media and political discourses reinforced the marginalization and racialization of these settings and neighborhoods, which turned into recurrent environments for research in the social sciences. However, within the past few years, the central location of these neighborhoods and institutional campaigns to renew them have led to their rapid gentrification. Old residents, businesses and community centers provide those moving into new apartments with access to foreign products that become the necessary ingredients of an emerging urban landscape that we refer to as "the Orient at home". This scenario opens the room for examining interactions between old and new residents, the ways in which these interactions contribute to transformations of the urban and/or public space, and ultimately, the role of social sciences in conceptualizing these urban areas. Thus, we encourage researchers in cultural/social anthropology and other disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities to submit abstracts related to these and/or similar issues.
