This paper argues that migration must be understood as social and spatial practices. This understanding emphasises both the migrant’s and places’ biography, which means that migration must be related to the narrative of place, space and identity. The theoretical discussion is exemplified in a case study of long distance migration (emigration) from a costal fishing community in northwest Spain. The focus of the analysis is on how migrants categorize the place where they grew up in relation to other spaces and how representations of local and distant space are constituted as hegemonic meanings of structures and symbols through different local practices.
