Cartographies of Diaspora throws light on these debates by exploring the intersections of 'race', gender, class, sexuality, ethnicity, generation and nationalism in different discourses, practices and political contexts. Cartographies of Diaspora provides an innovative theoretical framework for the study of 'difference', 'diversity' and 'commonality' which links them to the analyses of 'diaspora', 'border' and 'location'. In relating these questions to contemporary migrations of people, capital and cultures, it offers fresh insights into thinking about late twentieth-century social and cultural formations. It will be essential reading to students of sociology, cultural studies, postcolonial studies, 'race' and ethnic studies, women's studies and anthropology, and will also appeal to teachers, youth and community workers and social workers."@en ;
