|Title:||Foreigners in a foreign land : a study on expatriate families' relationships with their domestic workers||Authors:||Amirah Jamalludin Lee||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences::Sociology||Issue Date:||2015||Abstract:||What happens when two groups of migrants, the expatriates and domestic workers, live together under a roof in a foreign land? This global market phenomenon has created a plethora of experiences among expatriates that can be attributed to their multifarious backgrounds, values, needs and social identities. In this research, I have discovered that the relationships that are forged between these two groups of foreigners are constantly being met with the contestation of intimacy vis-à-vis the reestablishment and negotiation of professional boundaries. I explore the ways of how expatriate families navigate through their relationships with a stranger employee in their own private spaces via their lived experiences.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/62411||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
