The author suggests the shifting of interest from the object of representation of social relationships to the material nature of objects in transnational migrational contexts. More attention has to be dedicated to what people do in order to maintain links which constitute transnational social spaces. Those links are materially defined and frequently depend on objects the migrants carry, send, accept and use. Setting research focus on the discourses of identity and belonging is questionable; understanding of being – practices and living experiences in which objects play the vital role is essential for understanding the ways in which people become and remain active agents in transnational social spaces.
