Across the Shadow Lines: Diasporas in the Age of Transnationalism (ACLA, Toronto, 4/4-4/7/13; deadline, 11/1/12)

Thursday, October 11, 2012 - 8:13am
Sheshalatha Reddy (Howard University); Parama Sarkar (University of Toledo)

As the movement of peoples across state borders, diasporas are both literal and imaginative insofar as they entail the concomitant crossing of cultural forms. Diasporas forge and decimate local communities, call into question the boundaries of the nation-state, and reconfigure international relations. Ideally, they can result in the creation of new modes of social relations by producing opportunities for education and work and also encouraging the cross-fertilization of peoples, ideas, and arts. Yet migration has historically often been the result of forced labor, persecution, war, environmental degradation, decolonization and neo-imperialism, and the unrelenting spread of global capital.
