Diaspora, Migration, and Globalization: Expanding the Discourse of Adult Education
Alfred, Mary V.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n146 p87-97 Sum 2015
This article explores how notions of diaspora, migration, and globalization intersect to inform identities and social realities of those who leave their homeland and resettle in other nations. It calls for expanding the discourse of adult education to incorporate critical studies of the diaspora to make visible the inequality and imbalance of power inherent in the process of migration and resettlement.
