Transnational Spaces and Networks (INGS2601)


In this unit you will examine language, culture and communication as perspectives from which the characteristic tension of globalisation between difference and connection can be understood. We consider the relationship between a transnational public sphere and the politics of place and space, revealed, among other things, in area and diaspora studies. We ask: who are "global actors" and how, through their (self) representations, do they shape this relationship?
