Nepali Diaspora in a Globalised Era, Hardback Book

Nepali Diaspora in a Globalised Era Hardback

Edited by Tanka Bahadur Subba, A. C. Sinha

Part of the Nepal and Himalayan Studies series


This is one of the first books to explore Nepali diaspora in a global context, across India and other parts of South Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, and Australia.

It discusses the social, political and economic status and aspirations of the Nepali community worldwide.

The essays in the volume cover a range of themes including belonging and identity politics among Nepalese migrants, representation of Indian Nepalis in literature, diasporic consciousness, forceful eviction and displacement, social movements, and ritual practices among migrant communities.

Drawing attention to the lives of Nepali emigrants, the volume presents a sensitive and balanced understanding of their options and constraints, and their ambivalences about who they are.

This work will be invaluable to scholars and students of Nepal studies, area studies, diaspora and migration studies, social anthropology, cultural studies and literature.
