New media and Global Diaspora Symposium

New Media and Global Diaspora Symposium

Date: October 5-7, 2007

Location: Roger William University, Rhode Island, USA

Abstract: The symposium, sponsored by the Global Communication Program
and the Center for Global and International Studies at Roger Williams
University in Bristol, Rhode Island, 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. Media developed during this same period play a role,
both direct and indirect, in this process as these traditions become
transplanted into their “new home.”  (Source: KMDiary Volume 8: Issue
