Diasporas, Cultures and Identities brings together a range of
original research papers from Ethnic and Racial Studies that are
concerned with the question of the role of diasporic ties and the
social, cultural and political processes that are engendered by the
changing experiences of these communities. Chapters cover a range
of geopolitical and empirical contexts and serve to highlight the
diverse theoretical and empirical questions that have become an
integral part of the study of race and ethnicity in the
contemporary environment. The study of the role of diasporas in
modern societies has proceeded apace over the past two decades.
Although the role of diasporic communities has been the subject of
historical reflection for some time, it is only now that the
concept of diaspora has become a core theme in the social sciences
and humanities. We have seen an ongoing discussion about notions
such as diaspora, transnationalism and cosmopolitanism and their
appropriateness as conceptual frames of reference for analyzing the
diverse experiences of communities that have become dispersed
across the globe. This collection makes an important contribution
to this body of scholarship and research.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic
and Racial Studies.
