Cityscapes and Migration: Encapsulating Acculturation in the Urban Collective Space

Migration is structurally connected with the idea of movement, and thus of space. Nonetheless, most consumer acculturation studies have investigated migrant accommodative practices in relatively contextualized conditions. This ethnographic inquiry aims at offering a deep examination of the way migrants live their cities, which represent geographical, mental, and dialogical loci of reciprocal accommodation.
