Asian Migrations: Sojourning, Displacement, Homecoming and Other Travels
The migration of people within and beyond Asia no longer takes the form of permanent ruptures, uprooting, and resettlement. Today, such movement is more likely to be transient and complex, ridden with disruptions and detours, and based on translocal interconnections between places and multiple chains of movement. Written from various disciplinary perspectives, this collection of essays explores the migration experiences of a wide spectrum of people, from professional and managerial elites to contract workers and refugees. In addressing the nature of these Asian migrations, the authors demonstrate how mobility in today's world has transformed notions of citizenship and identity, and of displacement and home.
