Locating migration : rescaling cities and migrants( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the most part, policy discussions of immigrants and the city have been framed by calls for integration and social cohesion (especially in Europe), or they focus on problem areas such as criminality, drugs, poverty, and violence. Migration scholars, meanwhile--whether they are debating assimilation, integration, transnationalism, or diversity--seldom move beyond the framework established by policymakers. Within the migration literature there are many studies of migration to cities and the life of migrants in cities but very little about the relationship of migrants and cities, with cities figuring merely as containers providing spaces in which migrants settle and make a living. This is a book for those concerned with migration as well as with cities
Nations unbound : transnational projects, postcolonial predicaments, and deterritorialized nation-states by Linda G Basch( Book )

56 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work examines an increasing trend in migration - transnationalism. Immigrants today are no longer rooted in one location. By building transnational social networks, economic alliances and political ideologies, they are able to cross the geographic and cultural boundaries of both their countries of origin and of settlement. Through ethnographic studies of immigrant populations from St Vincent, Grenada, Haiti and the Philippines to the United States, the authors aim to demonstrate that transnationalism is something other than expanded nationalism. They argue that by placing immigrants in a limbo between the settler and visitor, transnationalism challenges the concepts of citizenship and nationhood
Whose cosmopolitanism? : critical perspectives, relationalities and discontents by Nina Glick Schiller( )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The term cosmopolitan is increasingly used within different social, cultural and political settings, including academia, popular media and national politics. However those who invoke the cosmopolitan project rarely ask whose experience, understanding, or vision of cosmopolitanism is being described and for whose purposes? In response, this volume assembles contributors from different disciplines and theoretical backgrounds to examine cosmopolitanism's possibilities, aspirations and applications-as well as its tensions, contradictions, and discontents-so as to offer a critical commentary on the vital but often neglected question: whose cosmopolitanism? The book investigates when, where, and how cosmopolitanism emerges as a contemporary social process, global aspiration or emancipatory political project and asks whether it can serve as a political or methodological framework for action in a world of conflict and difference

Migration, development, and transnationalization : a critical stance by Nina Glick Schiller( Book )

Cosmopolitan sociability : locating transnational religious and diasporic networks by Tsypylma Darieva( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book approaches the concept of cosmopolitan sociability as a cultural or territorial rootedness that facilitates a simultaneous openness to shared human emotions, experiences, and aspirations. Cosmopolitan Sociability critiques definitions of cosmopolitanism as a tolerance for cultural difference or a universalist morality that arise from contemporary experiences of mobility and globalization. Challenging these assumptions, the book explores the degree to which a 'cosmopolitan dimension' can be practised within particular
Regimes of Mobility : Imaginaries and Relationalities of Power( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mobility studies emerged from a postmodern moment in which global ' flows' of capital, people and objects were increasingly noted and celebrated. Within this new scholarship, categories of migrancy are all seen through the same analytical lens. This book builds on, as well as critiques, past and present studies of mobility. In so doing, it challenges conceptual orientations built on binaries of difference that have impeded analyses of the interrelationship between mobility and stasis. These include methodological nationalism, which
Haitian Americans : NK07( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haitian Americans are people living in the United States whose origins are the island of Haiti. This file consists of eleven documents, all in English. The time coverage for the file ranges from approximately 1958 to the 1980s. The primary focus of the file is on the Haitian population in New York City (seven documents), with a secondary foci on Miami, Florida (two documents), and on Evanston, Illinois and the United States as a whole (one document each). Probably the most comprehensive study of the Haitian Americans is that of Laguerre which although centering on the New York City area does provide some additional data on other Haitian groups in the United States (e.g., regarding internal migrations, etc.). Nearly all the works in this file deal in a greater or lesser degree with the Haitian emigration to the United States, settlement patterns, the establishment of new ethnic identities, cultural adaptation, and relations with the black American population. Other major topics of ethnographic interest are: sociological and sociolinguistic analysis of Haitians in America, language use (French, Creole, English), social structure of the Haitian community, economics and education, and family organization and structure

Beyond methodological nationalism : research methodologies for cross-border studies by Anna Amelina( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cross-border studies have become attractive for a number of fields, including international migration, studies of material and cultural globalization, and history. While cross-border studies have expanded, the critique on nation-centered research lens has also grown. This book revisits drawbacks of methodological nationalism in theory and methodological strategies. It summarizes research methodologies of the current studies on transnationalization and globalization, such as multi-scalar and transnational approaches, global and multi-sited ethnography, as well as the entangled history approa

From immigrant to transmigrant : theorizing transnational migration by Nina Glick Schiller( )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this article we use our studies of migration from St. Vincent, Grenada, the Philippines, and Haiti to the U.S. to delineate some of the parameters of an ethnography of transnational migration and explore the reasons for and the implications of transnational migrations. We conclude that the transnational connections of immigrants provide a subtext of the public debates in the U.S. about the merits of immigration.
