ROSALES MENDOZA, Adriana Leona. "All belief is beyond". Intercultural boundaries, spaces and rights in temporal agricultural migrants from the Yucatán peninsula in Quebec. Estud. cult. maya [online]. 2016, vol.48, pp.193-222. ISSN 0185-2574.

This article reports the results of a research project undertaken with temporal agricultural workers in Quebec, Canada, and in the municipalities of Maní, Mama and Dzidzantún in the state of Yucatán, and El Ramonal in the state of Quintana Roo. In this article, I analyze some of the experiences of migrants from the Yucatan peninsula who participated in the Program for Agricultural Temporal Workers in Quebec, Canada (PTAT) during 2012. I undertake an interactional analysis between the cultures of origin and of destination, with an emphasis on the strategies that workers use for their migration process. This is done with the intent of transcending the dichotomous model that focuses on the receptive society and the subsequent affectations of the autochthonous society. This exploratory study included quantitative and qualitative techniques, like ethnographic observation and semistructured interviews, both in Canada and Mexico.

Palabras llave : Agricultural workers; immigration; intercultural; human rights; reasonable accommodations.
