Abstract

Based on a series of case studies of globally distributed media and their reception in different parts of the world, Imagining the Global reflects on what contemporary global culture can teach us about transnational cultural dynamics in the 21st century. A focused multisited cultural analysis that reflects on the symbiotic relationship between the local, the national, and the global, it also explores how individuals’ consumption of global media shapes their imagination of both faraway places and their own local lives. Chosen for their continuing influence, historical relationships, and different geopolitical positions, the case sites of France, Japan, and the United States provide opportunities to move beyond common dichotomies between East and West, or United States and “the rest.” From a theoretical point of view, Imagining the Global endeavors to answer the question of how one locale can help us understand another locale. Drawing from a wealth of primary sources—several years of fieldwork; extensive participant observation; more than 80 formal interviews with some 160 media consumers (and occasionally producers) in France, Japan, and the United States; and analyses of media in different languages—author Fabienne Darling-Wolf considers how global culture intersects with other significant identity factors, including gender, race, class, and geography. Imagining the Global investigates who gets to participate in and who gets excluded from global media representation, as well as how and why the distinction matters.

Abstract

Entre fascination et peur, enthousiasme et hostilité, la nouvelle migration chinoise questionne. Les travaux sur « la Chine en Afrique » ont occulté l'importance de l'émergence de la Chine pour ses voisins les plus proches. Cette omission est particulièrement flagrante dans le cas de l'Asie du Sud-Est qui a toujours été le principal théâtre des engagements commerciaux de la Chine avec le monde. Considérée comme l'arrière-cour naturelle de la Chine, l'Asie du Sud-Est est un laboratoire complexe et hétérogène des circulations et des identités en construction à l'aube du « siècle chinois ». La question des relations entre la Chine et le reste du monde est tantôt pensée en termes de domination, de menace, d'exploitation, et de soutien aux régimes autoritaires, tantôt en termes d'aubaine et d'opportunités de développement. Cette recherche propose de dépasser cette approche binaire en décrivant les stratégies mises en œuvre par les acteurs locaux pour atténuer l'inégalité des rapports de force, négocier l'asymétrie, contourner l'hégémonie, embrasser, résister ou manipuler les termes dictés par les capitaux chinois. Le présent Carnet, centré sur les pays de l'ancienne Indochine française - le Cambodge, le Viêt Nam et le Laos - constitue la première étape d'un projet éditorial plus large qui se donne pour ambition de relever ce défi.

Abstract

Depuis les années 1990, à l’instar d’autres pays et notamment de la Chine, la République socialiste du Viêt Nam (RSVN) déploie un éventail de politiques pour tirer profit de ses exilés ou enfants d’exilés. L’objectif du gouvernement est de mobiliser, au nom de l’Union nationale (Đại đoàn kết dân tộc), les ressortissants vietnamiens de l’étranger estimés à environ 4 millions dans plus de cent pays à travers le monde. Pour se rapprocher des Vietnamiens de l’étranger (Việt kiều) et les solidariser avec leur nation d’origine, les autorités vietnamiennes ont progressivement décidé d’intervenir directement au sein des communautés en invoquant plusieurs prétextes : favoriser l’intégration et une vie stable des Vietnamiens de l’étranger dans leur pays d’accueil, protéger leurs droits et intérêts légitimes et lutter contre l’acculturation au sein des communautés. Pour ce faire, la RSVN a créé ou amélioré des structures à la fois à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur de ses frontières (associations progouvernementales de l’étranger, ambassades, consulats, associations de proches des Vietnamiens de l’étranger et comités). Elle a pour cela mis en place des médias qui facilitent la relation entre le Viêt Nam et les communautés d’outre-mer, tout en élaborant un cadre juridique pour (ré)intégrer les Vietnamiens de l’étranger à la nation. D’abord hésitante, l’application de ces mesures s’est pleinement concrétisée à compter de 2004 à la suite de la promulgation de la directive du Bureau politique n° 36-NQ/TW.

Abstract

This book examines the needs, aspirations, strategies, and challenges of transnational Muslim migrants in Europe with regard to family practices such as marriage, divorce, and parenting. Critically re-conceptualizing ‘wellbeing’ and unpacking its multiple dimensions in the context of Muslim families, it investigates how migrants make sense of and draw on different norms, laws, and regimes of knowledge as they navigate different aspects of family relations and life in a transnational social space.

Abstract

Declining access to fresh water is one of the twenty-first century’s most pressing environmental and human rights challenges, yet the struggle for water is not a new cause. The 8,800-kilometer border dividing Canada and the United States contains more than 20 percent of the world’s total freshwater resources, and Border Flows traces the century-long effort by Canada and the United States to manage and care for their ecologically and economically shared rivers and lakes. Ranging across the continent, from the Great Lakes to the Northwest Passage to the Salish Sea, the histories in Border Flows offer critical insights into the historical struggle to care for these vital waters. From multiple perspectives, the book reveals alternative paradigms in water history, law, and policy at scales from the local to the transnational. Students, concerned citizens, and policymakers alike will benefit from the lessons to be found along this critical international border.With contributions by Andrea Charron, Alice Cohen, Dave Dempsey, Jerry Dennis, Colin A.M. Duncan, Matthew Evenden, James W. Feldman, Noah D. Hall, Lynne Heasley, Nancy Langston, Frédéric Lasserre, Daniel Macfarlane, Andrew Marcille, Jeremy Mouat, Emma S. Norman, Peter Starr, Joseph E.

Abstract

En ce début de XXIe siècle, comment apprécier la place du Laos en Asie du Sud-Est ? L'État tampon de la guerre froide saura-t-il exploiter sa position centrale dans la péninsule Indochinoise, à la porte de l'immense nation chinoise, pour s'imposer comme un pays charnière ? Le programme de développement du Grand Mékong l'aidera-t-il à se désenclaver ? Son adhésion à l'Asean lui permettra-t-elle d'affirmer son identité, de s'affranchir des relations parfois difficiles qu'il entretient toujours avec le Viêt Nam ou la Thaïlande ? Pourra-t-il à la fois rattraper son retard économique et technologique vis-à-vis de ses voisins et gérer sa différence politique ? Enfin, et ce n'est pas le moindre défi, comment la société laotienne s'adaptera-t-elle à tous ces bouleversements ? Autant de questions qui se posent à ce pays en pleine mutation. À travers cet ouvrage, Vatthana Pholsena et Ruth Banomyong nous emmènent à la découverte du Laos d'aujourd'hui et font émerger les enjeux et mécanismes de son intégration régionale.

Abstract

With so much of the global population living on the move, away from their homelands, and in diasporic communities, death and mourning practices are inevitably impacted. Transnational Death brings together eleven cutting-edge articles from the emerging field of transnational death studies. By highlighting European, Asian, North American, and Middle Eastern perspectives, the collection provides timely and fresh analysis and reflection on people’s changing experiences with death in the context of migration over time. First beginning with a thematic assessment of the field of transnational death studies, readers then have the opportunity to delve into case studies that examine experiences with death and mourning at a distance from the viewpoints of Family, Community, and Commemoration. The chapters highlight complicated issues confronting migrants, their families, and communities, including: negotiations of burial preferences and challenges of corpse repatriation; the financial costs of providing end-of-life care, travel at times of death, and arranging culturally appropriate funerals and religious services; as well as the emotional and sociocultural weight of mourning and commemoration from afar. Overall, Transnational Death provides new insights on identity and belonging, community reciprocity, transnational communication, and spaces of mourning and commemoration.

Abstract

This study is principally concerned with the ethical dimensions of identity management technology – electronic surveillance, the mining of personal data, and profiling – in the context of transnational crime and global terrorism. The ethical challenge at the heart of this study is to establish an acceptable and sustainable equilibrium between two central moral values in contemporary liberal democracies, namely, security and privacy. Both values are essential to individual liberty, but they come into conflict in times when civil order is threatened, as has been the case from late in the twentieth century, with the advent of global terrorism and trans-national crime. We seek to articulate legally sustainable, politically possible, and technologically feasible, global ethical standards for identity management technology and policies in liberal democracies in the contemporary global security context. Although the standards in question are to be understood as global ethical standards potentially to be adopted not only by the United States, but also by the European Union, India, Australasia, and other contemporary liberal democratic states, we take as our primary focus the tensions that have arisen between the United States and the European Union.
