Abstract: How do media deal with multiplicity, a phenomenon that is the hallmark of our era of globalization, transnationalism, and migration? What sense can we make of the representational strategies deployed to define these new realities? How might we construct a genealogy of multiple belongings? These are some of the questions I am exploring in my current research project which traces the historical intersections of migration and media.
