Abstract

Journalism, Audiences and Diaspora is an important intervention into the scholarship on diasporic communication, as it reflects the many ways that journalism resists reification in the study of cultural, racial, ethnic communities. This collection takes the study of diasporic communication beyond the level of simply praising its existence, to offering critical engagements and analysis with the systems of journalistic production and dissemination as they relate to people who are living outside the borders of their birth nation, offering compelling case studies of production, process and consumption practices. Taking diasporic journalism seriously, as this book does, means examining how diasporic news discourses push back against, and at times reaffirm, existing national and transnational power relations. The 15 chapters in this book, at various points and to varying degrees, explore how diasporic communities engage with local, national, and global processes (social, cultural, governmental) and how diasporic news reflects those linkages.
