📚 A Very ❗️ Short Introduction

Diaspora

✅ Diaspora is an important concept in history, sociology, religious studies, ethnic studies, political science 🧪, and ➕ literary criticism, among other disciplines. Meanwhile, journalists, politicians, and ➕ cultural authorities use the term with increasing frequency when describing contemporary global migration. But what does diaspora mean Until recently, the term referred principally to the dispersal and ➕ exile of the Jews ✡️👥. However, over the course of the twentieth century, involuntary migrants from Armenia ​🇦🇲​, Africa 🌍️, and ➕ Ireland ​🇮🇪​ came ⤵️ to be seen 👀 as diasporic. Since the 1️⃣9️⃣8️⃣0️⃣s, diaspora has proliferated to a remarkable extent-to the point 👈️ where it risks losing its coherence. If diaspora is merely a synonym for migration or ethnic group, why ❓️ use the word at all Kevin Kennys Very ❗️ Short Introduction to diaspora examines the origins of diaspora as a concept, its changing 🚼️ meanings over time ⏱️, its current popularity, and ➕ its strengths and ➕ limitations as an explanatory device. Mediating between the multiple definitions currently in use, the book 📚️ proposes a flexible approach to diaspora that can 🥫 provide insights into the motives for migration; the networks through which migrants travel 🚕➡️; the political, economic, and ➕ cultural connections they form among themselves, with their homelands, and ➕ with fellow diasporans in other locations around the world 🗺️; the idea 💡 of return ↪️ to a homeland, sometimes literally but more often metaphorically; and ➕ recent developments 👨‍💻️ concerning refugees and ➕ globalization. The argument ranges broadly across time ⏱️ and ➕ space 🌌, using examples drawn 🖌️ mainly from Jewish 🕍, African, Irish, and ➕ Asian history. Diaspora emerges not ❌️ as a thing that can 🥫 be measured but as a concept that helps people 👥-migrants, scholars, and ➕ social commentators alike-to 🛠️ make sense of the experience of migration.
