Summary:
Changing Communities brings together policy analysis, theoretical understandings of migration and displacement, and illustrations of the diverse ways in which communities themselves perceive these processes of change. Marjorie Mayo draws from both previous studies and her own original research to examine a range of responses, taking account of the varying possibilities, challenges, and interests involved both within and between communities, locally and transnationally. The book highlights examples of some of the creative, cultural ways in which communities - including diaspora communities - reflect upon their experiences of change and find modes of responding and expressing their unique voices, in such art forms as poetry, storytelling, and photography.-- Provided by Publisher.
