Abstract [en]

Within the context of migration and globalisation of media, questions concerning the transformation of culture have become manifest among communication scholars. Due to alterations in the global political and economic order, such as deregulation of the media market, the media landscape has undergone extensive transformations during last decades of the twentieth century. Moreover, processes of decolonisation and post-colonisation, the opening of borders in Europe and the outbreak of wars, have led to increased migration movements and generated a flood of people, who for different reasons are looking for new places and new homes. Cultural communities are no longer fixed in particular geographical spaces. As a result we are facing what Hall has called ‘the global post-modern’ (1996), involving the possible shifts of power relations and cultural hierarchies that in particular apply to diaspora, people connected to a cultural community, now living dispersed. What interests us here are the processes of cultural transformation that are taking place within ‘the global post-modern’ where increasing numbers of people are negotiating their identities between continuity and change, between similarity and difference. In the new place, senses of homely belonging are necessarily being constructed with references to both the new place and to what has been left behind.
