Immigration as a Process

Temporality Concepts in Blogs of Latin American Immigrants to Quebéc

In their weblogs, immigrants from Latin America to Quebéc discuss the migration process in narrative reconstructions of personal experiences with the blogger community. During this collective work of meaning construction, various concepts of temporality play an essential role. Based on a large corpus of weblog posts and discussions and within the methodological frameworks of discourse analysis and interactional linguistics, this Long Essay examines the forms, functions and meaning of the migrants' temporality concepts.
