The book explores the phenomenon of post-2004 mobility between Ireland and Poland. In particular I examine the classed and gendered character of this migration wave, as well as its translocal character. I document and seek to understand the nature of this early 21st century human mobility, facilitated by the advances of internet, communication and travel technologies while simultaneously revealing “traditional” aspects of being away from home. I follow the migrants in their journeys and learn about the complex dynamics of their lives lived locally and on the move. Crucially, I try to apprehend my own positioning as a migrant/woman/researcher and figure out whether (e)migration lives up to the expectations of a “better life”.
