Summary "Migration, Identity, and Belonging How do you know when you belong to a country? When is the nation-state a homeland? The boundaries and borders which define who belongs and who does not proliferate in the age of globalization, whether or not they coincide with national jurisdictions. Contributors to this collection engage with how boundaries are made and sustained, examining how belonging is mediated by material relations of power, capital, and circuits of communication technology on the one side and representations of identity, nation, and homeland on the other. The authors' diverse methodologies, ranging from archival research, oral histories, literary criticism, and ethnography attend to these contradictions by studying how the practices of migration and identification, procured and produced through global exchanges of bodies and goods that cross borders, foreclose those borders to (re)produce, and (re)imagine the homeland and its boundaries. This book will appeal to students in classes related to race, ethnicity, and nation; citizenship; representation and aesthetics; media and social movements; and globalization. The book also participates in multidisciplinary conversations concerning law and culture as well as communication studies, cultural studies, ethnic studies, political science, and media studies"-- Provided by publisher
