Communication and Information flows – Overview

The aim of our research will be to:

- To undertake research on digital networks through which communication and information flows between migrant individuals and groups in different geographical locations is practiced, focusing in particular on the ways in which transnational cultural ties and communities are formed across national borders.

- To identify gender dynamics within these digital networks, focusing in particular on the function of textual, visual and audio mediums of communication and information flows in producing transnational identities.

- To explore the construction of transnational migrant networks through the usage of digital mediums enabling immediate communication and information flows across geographical distance, with particular emphasis on language as a factor enabling or preventing the flow of communication and information across national borders through research conducted on and off line.
