Rural-urban migration and redefining indigeneity in Dhaka, Bangladesh
2015 (English)In: Asia in Focus: A Nordic journal on Asia by early career researchers, ISSN 2446-0001, no 1, 53-58 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper examines how students from indigenous groups from the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Southeast Bangladesh who migrated to Dhaka navigate the city. It does so by investigating how students relate to discourses of modernity and urban lifestyles while not disregarding the importance of belonging to an indigenous group. This way challenging notions of being indigenous as related to a non-industrial mode of production and essentially rooted in rural areas. In addition, by revealing the ways in which these students redefine themselves as Bangladeshi, the dominant notion of a Bangladeshi as ethnic Bengali and Muslim are challenged since indigenous migrant students are neither ethnic Bengalis nor Muslims.
