Globalization recreates translocalities from what were previously imagined as isolated, peripheral communities. In the Philippines, a remote indigenous community incorporates new practices of gender brought by female circular migrants from urban 'abroad'. Women 'doing gender' at a village fair map a novel habitus, reshaping senses of self and place. Their performances of gender mark changes in everyday gender practices and the lived experiences of locality.
