Ajaya K. Sahoo, faculty in the Centre for Study of Indian Diaspora, University of Hyderabad and Gabriel Sheffer, Department of Political Science, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel have together edited a book titled, Diaspora and Identity: Perspectives on South Asian Diaspora. The book is published by Routledge, London.
This book investigates the identity issues of South Asians in the diaspora. It engages the theoretical and methodological debates concerning processes of culture and identity in the contemporary context of globalization and transnationalism. It analyses the South Asian diaspora – a perfect route to a deeper understanding of contemporary socio-cultural transformations and the way in which information and communication technology functions as both a catalyst and indicator of such transformations. The book will be of interest to scholars of diaspora studies, cultural studies, international migration studies, and ethnic and racial studies.
