This Working Group is concerned with the production and consumption of the media by globally dispersed diasporic communities. The changing relationship between diasporas and globalisation is examined in the light of the transnationalisation of the media and the reconfigurations of place, space and culture that affect everyday life for diasporic communities. Areas of interest include the interplay of the transnational and the local in diasporic communications, diasporic communications and identities, audiences and diasporic cultural politics, diasporic cultural production and consumption, and the tension between integration, cultural separatism and hybridity. This Working Group is also associated with Media Production and Consumption theme.
