Reflections on Everyday Life

This book breaks frontiers. It deals with human beings and their intrinsic relationship with time in the space of a week. Each day is different from another. There is nothing human without days. It is said that life is a single day, but one day is the measure of time in the rhythm of human life. Days, weeks, months, years, and decades are human organizations of time; the universe has no days. It is human beings who are time. We are literally the days of the week repeatedly until the week ends. In this book, there is a continuous search for the days’ identities, for their specific characteristics, for the way they open up to our consciousness in each of its parts. The book identifies the particular characteristics of each day and the specific relationship of human beings with time.

This book discusses the current socio-cultural situation of North African migrants in Europe, and analyzes migration, gender, and identity in their multiple dimensions, consequences and expressions, which range from sociological approaches to culture and literature. The chapters debate the topic of migration and culture from various angles, making this volume a forum where notions of dispossession, cultural identity, and otherness are debated. It comprises contributions that range in subject matter from sociological and anthropological studies of Maghrebi diaspora and migrants in Europe to reflections on transnational literature. It is an analysis of migration with all its complex aspects, and multiple expressions of ‘exile’, ‘otherness’, and ‘pain’.
