Christou, Anastasia (2004) Reconceptualizing networks and return migration: constructing identities, negotiating the ethnos and mapping diasporas - theoretical challenges regarding empirical contributions (in the Greek-American case). Spaces of Identity, 4 (3). pp. 53-70. ISSN 1496-6778Full text not available from this repository.
The article addresses the theoretical implications of how inclusive and exclusive spaces (belongingness and alienation) emerge when second-generation Greek-American return migrants relocate and settle in their ancestral homeland and draws attention to competing discourses of cultural disruption and ruptures in identification patterns. The ambivalent spaces of ‘home’ and ‘host’ interactions accentuate agency but also pose additional conceptual challenges for the redefinition of notions of self, belonging, and nation.
