About this product
- DescriptionThe global pathways that connect cities and nations are congested with people, money, and cultural transmissions. Transnational Yearnings maps a new way to look at modern contact zones and the personal interconnections that inform them by tracing circuits of migration and leisure travel between postcolonial Jamaica and Toronto, a city that has become for Jamaican Canadians both a place of promise and cultural vitality and a site of criminalization and exclusion through deportation. Invative and provocative, this book is about the desires, intimacies, and power relations that at once inform and reflect transnational migration and the diasporization of urban space.
