ARIZA, Marina. Shame, pride and humiliation: emotional counterpoints in the experience of female labor migration. Estud. sociol [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.103, pp.65-89. ISSN 2448-6442.  https://doi.org/10.24201/es.2017v35n103.1510.

On the basis of 12 in-depth interviews with Dominican immigrant workers in the low reproductive sectors in Madrid in 2014 (domestic service and care), a description is provided of the place occupied by shame, pride and humiliation as key social emotions. From a sociological perspective, these emotions constitute a kind of gyroscope that reports on the status of social ties, as well as the quality of structurally-rooted social interaction. Humiliation, a darker version of shame, has been linked to migration due to the socially degraded jobs immigrants often perform. Although in contexts of acute social asymmetry, the condition of service inherent to domestic and care work often entails painful feelings, the success of the family economic project as well as small achievements in the field of employment constitute a source of deep satisfaction for immigrant women.

Palavras-chave : migration; emotions; female labor experience; pride; humiliation; shame.
