(Re)fazendo diferenças de classe em movimento a classe média brasileira em Londres

Resumen

Este artigo analisa o papel da classe social (interseccionada com gênero, “raça” e espaço) na produção e negociação da diferença em um contexto de mobilidade transnacional. Para além dos debates que tomam de antemão etnia e/ou nacionalidade compartilhadas que resultam na constituição de comunidades transnacionais unificadas e solidárias, este artigo demonstra como brasileiros de classe média negociam as representações estigmatizadas de classe (e racializadas) do “migrante” na produção de diferenciações sociais em Londres. Diferenças de classe são produzidas na medida em que as jornadas migratórias do grupo analisado são construídas e entendidas como uma experiência cultural e de vida (“cosmopolita”), distanciando-se assim das representações da “comunidade brasileira” e do ““migrante brasileiro” – entendidos como o pobre/migrante-trabalhador vivendo na comunidade transnacional. Tal diferenciação ocorre a partir de uma avaliação contínua de suas vidas em Londres (“aqui”) em referência ao Brasil (“lá”). Refletir sobre o posicionamento deles “aqui” e “lá” geralmente permite com que brasileiros da classe média se valorizem em comparação aos seus compatriotas em Londres, num contexto político e social que estigmatiza “migrantes” e “comunidades”. Tal reflexão também produz frustração, raiva e ambivalências, uma vez que a migração frequentemente embaralha as demarcações de classe que historicamente garantiam distinções a muitos desses brasileiros no Brasil.
