Belonging in Oceania : Movement, Place-making and Multiple Identifications, Hardback Book

Belonging in Oceania : Movement, Place-making and Multiple Identifications Hardback

Edited by Elfriede Hermann, Wolfgang Kempf, Toon Van Meijl

Part of the Pacific Perspectives: Studies of the European Society for Oceanists series

Description

Ethnographic case studies explore what it means to "belong" in Oceania, as contributors consider ongoing formations of place, self and community in connection with travelling, internal and international migration.

The chapters apply the multi-dimensional concepts of movement, place-making and cultural identifications to explain contemporary life in Oceanic societies.

The volume closes by suggesting that constructions of multiple belongings - and, with these, the relevant forms of mobility, place-making and identifications - are being recontextualized and modified by emerging discourses of climate change and sea-level rise.
