Abstract

Scarce attention has been given to the social-emotional problem that men in the Canadian Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program undergo during the migratory process. Even less attention has been placed on their romantic partners. In this article, we inquire into the emotions felt among women from Yucatan and Chiapas, Mexico, while their partners are working in Canada. Our analysis is based on a postcolonial and intersectional perspective, as well as on a socio-anthropological and geographical approach to emotions. The strategy of inquiry is based on the qualitative approach, using a novel method of the evocation of emotion through images (photo-evoking), proposed by the authors.
