Example text

There is, in any case, a greater felt need for an evident ethical dimension in the decisions, both private and public, that intervene in all aspects of life and add up to the texture of cosmopolitan societies (2002: 20). Beck (2003) argues that within cosmopolitanism the binary of either/or1 is replaced by this and that. e. a choice neither to display loyalties to the country of origin nor to the country of settlement. Research needs to further explore this possibility, next to the possibility of multiple belongings.

The chapter begins with the evolution and adaptation of the term ‘diaspora’ from its classical definition to the contemporary conceptualisation that includes recent migrant communities. After that an overview of the multicultural debates in the UK is provided. This is then followed by an exploration of the growth of the concept of transnationalism and transnational media. In mapping these categories of diaspora, multiculturalism and transnationalism, the chapter proposes intersections of these three areas in understanding the growth and implications of transnational media in the diverse, global arena of the 21st century.

Consequently, the study of diaspora, culture and the media broke off the boundaries of a particular sub-field, attracting attention among media and communications scholars, sociologists of race, ethnicity and migration, historians and international relations’ experts. When in the spring of 2006 Latinos took over the streets of American cities after mobilising action around community centres, minority media and blog calls for participation in a movement for recognition and citizenship, many American politicians and social scientists were taken by surprise.
