the intensification of world-wide social relations which link distant localities in such a way that local
happenings are shaped by events occurring many miles away and vice versa” –Giddens, 1990
Space vs. Place
-Deterritorialization = removal of a territorial basis (space) for people/organizations/businesses
-Supraterritoriality = a new non-spatial/non-physical place is being created
-Space = geographic entity
-Place = socially constructed (i.e. kitchen)
How do we study the fragmented aspects of the world today?
-One way is to look at where the fragmentation occurs
oi.e. Borders
-Power
Transnationalism
-“anchored in and transcend one or more nation-states ---
-Nation = territorial, social and cultural aspects
- Immigrants cross borders; not necessarily physical borders (i.e. cultural, linguistic)
-the trans of transmigrant should not assume the crossing of nation-state borders as the defining
criterion. Crossing sociocultural boundaries within or across nation-states is a more useful
definition that would include a diversity of transmigrant experiences
-Studies now encourage consideration of ongoing affiliations that inform migrant experiences
outside the nation-state
Transnational communities
- [membership is] based on common identity with co-ethnics in the ancestral homeland and with
other migration destinations
Challenges
-A) a loss of social cohesion in country of residence
-B) a new form of immigrant adaptation
