Cultural Challenges of Return Migration

I plan to study the cultural impact of return migration as manifest in literature, music, and everyday life. I am especially interested in the ways in which this impact of what I term "cultural remittances" goes to challenge longheld assumptions and traditions of national cultures. My main focus will be on the Puerto Rican experience, but I will also consider other important examples, such as Dominicans and Mexicans. I will combine ethnographic, interpretive and theoretical analysis. I have a contract with Routledge for a book tentatively titled, "The Diaspora Strikes Back."
