Humber Liberal Arts Conference

Displacement and Diaspora: Differing Diasporas

2:55pm

Loft 1

90 mins

In this panel, diaspora is examined as a global and digital concept, both in the past and present. One researcher undertakes a critical examination of the diaspora concept as it relates to ancient Mexican migrations, dissecting the complex movements of ancient Mexican societies and juxtaposing them with traditional diaspora attributes helping to foster a more holistic comprehension of human migration patterns. Another looks at the Iranian diaspora’s long history and the Iranian government’s attitude toward and understanding of the power and role of the Iranian diaspora communities. Finally, the impact of social media on digital diasporas will be looked at, exploring questions such as whether or not they create online segregation and cultural marginalization, or accelerate cultural assimilation and integration into mainstream.

This event is part of the annual interdisciplinary Humber Liberal Arts Conference.

Presenters:

Teng Zhang (Kansas State University)

Kellie Roddy (University of California Los Angeles, UCLA)

Ronen A. Cohen (Ariel University)
