Abstract [en]

Southern Spain is the most attractive region in Europe for so called lifestyle migrants from a number of European countries, preferably from the Nordic countries and Great Britain. This paper examines intra-European relations as they are narrated by Swedish lifestyle migrants living permanently or part-time at the Spanish Suncoast. The aim is to discuss classed and racial aspects of self-segregation and constructions of cultural similarity and parallel difference that both override and uphold boundaries tied to national, cultural and social divisions. By looking at how formations of ‘international communities’ are shaped among north Western European lifestyle migrants, theories on ‘orientations’ towards whiteness and likeness, and institutions as ‘meeting points’ where some bodies tend to feel comfortable in certain spaces as they already belong here, are developed. These ‘international communities’ recruit particular subjects, yet resulting in a division between migrants from northern Europe, non-European migrants and locals from Spain. The results destabilize the idea of a common, culturally homogeneous European identity, displaying divisions mediated through discourses of cultural differences. What appears is a south-north divide built upon a deep Swedish postcolonial identification with Anglo-Saxon countries and cultures and parallel dis-identification with (the former colonial powers in) Southern Europe.
