Abstracts:
Mass migration from rural to urban areas is one of the most visible and
significant aspects of the “rise of China.” Personal experiences both
describe and help us interpret such macro phenomena. This paper is an
ethnography that draws on the author’s ongoing ethnographic fieldwork in
Hmub (Hmong/Miao) villages in the highlands of southeastern Guizhou
since 1997, in particular, field trips in 2011 and 2014. It aims to
explore identity, mobility, marginality, and multiple modernities
through personal histories and narratives that deal with the
cross-regional movement of Hmub-speaking individuals and families, and
the villages and counties they inhabit. Life history narratives not only
help us to reconstruct and interpret the lives of real people through
empirical methodology, but also relate to concepts of performance,
existence and linguistic practice. In particular, this paper focuses on
the life histories of Hmub women and their experiences of rural-urban
migration in southeastern Guizhou (Qiandongnan). Through the study of
these cases, this paper describes and discusses personal experiences and
social transformation from the 1920s to 2010s, showing how Hmub women
migrants frame their own subjectivity, identity, mobility and multiple
modernities through narrating their own life histories. The paper is
based on empirical data gathered through in-depth interviews,
participant observation and historical research.
