Recensies en Artikelen

“Diaspora and transnationalism have become buzzwords in popular debates. In this innovative work, Bauböck, Faist and their co-authors reclaim the concepts for social science by demonstrating their significance for contemporary migration research.” Stephen Castles, Research Chair in Sociology at The University of Sydney “A strong, elegant and very welcome map and compass for the concepts, theories, questions and methodological challenges that drive research on the global condition.” Peggy Levitt, Professor of Sociology at Wellesley College and author of God Needs No Passport "An insightful and thought-provoking contribution to the theoretical and methodological debates. The chapters provide both fresh and authoritative perspectives on the key issues at stake and underscore the value of cross-disciplinary dialogue." Eva Østergaard-Nielsen, Associate Professor of Political Science, Autonomous University of Barcelona “‘Diaspora’ and ‘transnationalism’ have come to dominate migration studies over the last two decades. Compiled by foremost scholars in the field, this volume skilfully brings together compelling essays that examine concepts, theories and methods surrounding these two terms, their mixed definitions, critiques and social scientific impacts.” Steven Vertovec, Director, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity

Diaspora and Transnationalism

Concepts, Theories and Methods

Diaspora en transnationalisme zijn veel gebruikte begrippen in zowel het academische als het politieke discours. Hoewel beide termen oorspronkelijk naar heel verschillende fenomenen verwijzen, overlappen ze elkaar tegenwoordig steeds meer. Deze inflatie van betekenis gaat hand in hand met een gevaar van stereotypering van collectieve identiteiten. Daarom analyseert dit boek diaspora en transnationalisme als onderzoeksperspectieven in plaats van als kenmerken van bepaalde sociale groepen.
