The Handbook of Diasporas, Media and Culture provides an authoritative outline of the relevant intellectual terrain on diasporas and media by presenting key debates and state-of-the-art research on the intersection of diasporic phenomena, media and cultural studies.
It takes an interdisciplinary approach to diasporic media and culture and brings together internationally recognised scholars and research that has informed the field, in order to trace and explore the multiple roots of diasporic studies in migration, globalization and transnationalism debates, to identify and present the key theoretical perspectives, paradigms and focal areas of investigation, and to provide an overview of the evolution of the field in interaction with developments in broader debates on diasporas, media technologies, media audiences and users. It also identifies and presents key empirical research and case study exemplars and explores current challenges and future directions in research.
Finally, the handbook attempts to make a valuable contribution to better understanding diasporic cultures and their impact on our globalized world, the complex networks and flows that underpin it and the transnational cultural politics and practices that are emerging.

KeywordsDiasporas, media, diasporic cultures, globalisation, transnational flows, transnational networks, cultural politics
