This dataset illustrates the analytical process used by Dr. Rodolfo Maggio and other researchers who worked collaboratively in the research project “The Domestic Moral Economy: an ethnographic study of value in the Asia-Pacific Region” (2010–2015). The example concerns the circulation of objects and food within webs of kinship that stretch between the island of Malaita and Honiara, the capital city of Solomon Islands. The combination of kinship terms, moral prescriptions, and interview data illustrates how a population of migrants in the South Pacific maintains social relationships with their relatives at home by means of transactions of food and objects. The method can be applied to analyse cases such as networks of subsistence, informal markets, and alternative communities. The dataset files are accompanied by a Teaching Guide and a Student Guide.
