Transculturals, Transnationals: The New Diaspora.
Willis, David B.; And Others
International Schools Journal, v14 n1 p29-42 Nov 1994
The dispersion of highly qualified people to many lands due to transnational employment is a new kind of diaspora. A long-term study of an international school in Japan suggests that foreign-national students may be forerunners of a kind of transcultural/transnational identity needed for the world to transcend ultranationalism and ethnocentrism. These students have the skills to create community from diversity. (52 references) (MLH)
