Edinburgh Studies on Diasporas and Transnationalism


Series Editor(s): Bahar Baser, Mari Toivanen

A forum for studies on global diaspora populations in the age of migration

Bringing together high-quality academic works written by diaspora and transnationalism scholars, this series adopts an interdisciplinary approach and is open to empirical and theoretical submissions alike, making meaningful contributions to contemporary debates in the field. While focusing on economic, political, social and cultural factors that shape and maintain transnational identities and diasporic attachments to the country of origin and residence, the series is also open to submissions on different aspects of transnational interactions from an arts and humanities perspective.
