A first publication derived from our ECREA DMM workshop held in Bilbao in November 2017 has been published. Ola Ogunyemi guest-edited a special issue of the Intellect journal “Crossings: Journal of Migration & Culture” titled Mediating identity and conflict through diasporic media.
Synopsis: this special issue on ‘Global identity and conflict through diaspora media’ expands the literature on diaspora and media beyond the framework of fostering identity as communal practices and communitarian meanings to the framework of continuity of commitment, behaviour and identity crisis that emerge due to diasporas’ engagement with different genres in the media. The collection of original papers highlights some intra-media and extra-media factors in media’s mediation process while providing an opportunity to develop theories, research, and frameworks that might guide emerging theoretical frameworks to help think about and discuss the interplay between these phenomena. The issue consists of 7 original papers, an introduction and a book review.
