ABSTRACT
The article examines autoethnography (as a form of methodological nationalism), a conceptual tendency that is helpful in the process of the construction of a multi-sited research fi eld, (multi-sited ethnography), at two levels: spatial and temporal. I maintain that this type of data, (migration researcher’s experience and history of migration of the family and local community), allows a better understanding of the nature of migration, which is understood as a process of long duration. More importantly, today’s migrants perceive the migration of a hundred years ago, as well as the present, precisely as transmigration, and not as emigration or immigration.
