Abstract: This dissertation seeks to understand how male sea-based migrants and their families manage their repeated separations and reunions and negotiate the resulting transformations in their family life. Contributing to studies in family and migration, my dissertation engages in issues concerning gender and parenthood. This research is based on family stories gathered through interviews and participation observation of families of sea-based migrants in the Philippines which include the experiences of the seafaring husbands/fathers, non-migrant wives/mothers and left-behind children. I address the changes and continuities in family roles, relationships and practices throughout the labour migration cycle. To comprehend the family reorganization, I suggest the family form of cyclical commuter family which depicts the spatio-temporal adaptations in their everyday dynamics. Using this proposed family arrangement, this research examines three aspects of migrant family life: gendered roles of non-migrant women, migrant fatherhood and everyday family practices.
