The Diaspora Strikes Back: Caribeño Tales of Learning and Turning (Book)
Title: The Diaspora Strikes Back: Caribeño Tales of Learning and Turning
Author: Juan Flores
Abstract: I introduce the concept of "cultural remittances" in discussing the challenges of return migration and of ideas and values from the diaspora as they are received in home countries. My main focus is on the Spanish Caribbean (Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Cuba), and my work is based on a set of 22 life-stories arranged and analyzed. Much attention goes to what I call "style transfers," that is, the impact of forms of cultural expression (music, poetry and visual arts) in their flow from diaspora to home country.
