Diasporas: Concepts, Intersections, Identities Kindle Edition
Wide-ranging and interdisciplinary, this collection considers critical concepts shaping the field, such as migration, ethnicity, post-colonialism and cosmopolitanism. It also examines key intersecting agendas and themes, including political economy, security, race, gender, and material and electronic culture. Original case studies of contemporary as well as classical diasporas are featured, mapping new directions in research and testing the usefulness of diaspora for analyzing the complexity of transnational lives today.
Diasporas is an essential text for anyone studying, working or interested in this increasingly vital subject.
“As scholarly approaches to Diasporas develop a global profile and span a variety of disciplines, this book provides an incisive account of the state of the art.” ―Homi K. Bhabha, Harvard University
“Simultaneously panoramic and precise, this volume offers authoritative, inclusive, yet blessedly focused articles on the terms, concepts, and perspectives that collectively define the field of diaspora studies.” ―Khachig Tölölyan, Diaspora: A Journal of Transnational Studies
“Bringing together an impressive array of distinguished interdisciplinary scholars with wide-ranging perspectives on the cultural and historical significance of contemporary diasporas worldwide, this book provides an essential companion to understanding the complex evolution of concepts of migration and identity and their vital impact on shaping the direction of public and academic debate today.” ―Susheila Nasta, Open University
