Abstract

Re-energising debates on the conceptualisation of diasporas in migration scholarship and in geography, this work stresses the important role that geographers can play in interrupting assumptions about the spaces and processes of diaspora. The intricate, material and complex ways in which those in diaspora contest, construct and perform identity, politics, development and place is explored throughout this book. The authors ‘dismantle’ diasporas in order to re-theorise the concept through empirically grounded, cutting-edge global research. [from book abstract - no abstract for the chapter is currently available].
