'Walking upright here' explores the dual transition of migration and motherhood for women from Goa, India now living in New Zealand. Based on Ruth’s Masters research, this is an in-depth descriptive exploring the experiences of new mothers in a new country.
The book also considers issues faced researchers in ethnic communities and provides strategies and suggestions to manage the competing tensions between communities and academia. As a research exemplar, it uses the dual transition of migration and motherhood to illustrate the applicability of reflexivity and methodological pluralism in countering the hegemonic deficiency discourse associated with migrant women.
The book provides an insight into the Goan community in New Zealand and supports and encourages other ethnic researchers. It will be of interest to anyone who wants to know about the Goan diaspora, ethnic communities in New Zealand, women's health or doing research amongst minority and ethnic groups.
