From Exile to Post-Exile: The diasporisation of Swedish Chileans in historical contexts
2009 (English)In: Social Identities, ISSN 1350-4630, E-ISSN 1363-0296, Vol. 15, no 5, 659-676 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The main focus of this article is how a set of practices revolve around the formation of an imagined community in dispersion – diasporisation. The study discusses the case of the Chilean diaspora in Sweden and its transformation from an exile context to a post-exile context facing a drastically altered historical situation. This transformation is analysed as a matter of agency where practices are framed differently as a response to the demand perceived in the context. The outcome of this argument speaks in favour of a diaspora concept that focuses on practices and how these are framed in order to mobilise a putative dispersed population.
