Abstract

Based on a multi-situated ethnography, the research project aims to interrogate the influence of identifications and bonds of belonging a religion organized communally in mobility processes diasporic and reterritorialization developed by Portuguese Sunnis and Ismailis of Indian origin settled in Lisbon and Luanda. Seeks to explore the differentiating role, both in identity and behavioral aspects, resulting from multiform and multi-phased migrant trajectories, through the kind and intensity of transnational connections (political, religious, family, etc.) sustained (not only with the origins but also with side-satellites belonging to the same diasporic network) by the influences of certain intergerational and gender dynamics (past and present), as well as by the existence of very heterogeneous socio-economics and socio-cultural process of integration among the colonial and postcolonial contexts to be analysed.
