Abstract

"Bringing together 32 scholars contributing 27 chapters, this book, entitled 'Diaspora, Migration, Communication Technologies and Transnational Identities' delivers a fascinating cross-disciplinary insight into some of the current social and mediatized dynamics that inform identitary processes in times of radical socio-cultural and political-economic transition. While the empirical emphasis of this book is on diasporic groups and their experiences with mainly new communication technologies, the topic is embedded in a broader set of questions that inform social sciences today. The book speaks to and analyses convergence cultures, community building, transnational connections and processes of identity formation in the midst of these processes and relations" - Thomas Tufte (Foreword)
