Announcing a symposium addressing the relationship of New Media to the global diaspora. The symposium focuses primarily on the migrations of the past 100 years and how the “living traditions” transmitted by these communities are continually subject to loss, gain and interpretation. New Media plays a role, both direct and indirect, in this process as these traditions become transplanted into their “new home.”
•Encourage academic discourse focused on transnational migratory populations and the role new media plays in transmitting and sustaining their living traditions.
•Create a forum for researchers in the liberal arts and other disciplines studying the nature, significance and consequence of global migration
•Provide a concert performance of traditional music and dance illustrating the vitality of these living traditions.
