Pok Chi Lau has focused on the contemporary cultural and social transformations brought about by human migration. Through photography, writing and video he seeks to illuminate the impact of global migration upon the private lives and social environments of the Chinese people, both in the Chinese homeland and their adopted environs. To understand the Chinese Diaspora is to acknowledge the significance of human patterns of global migration as they shape individual experiences and emerging cultures.

Diasporas: Concepts, Intersections, Identities
Edited by Kim Knott and Seán McLoughlin

Featuring essays by world-renowned scholars, Diasporas charts the various ways in which global population movements and associated social, political and cultural issues have been seen through the lens of diaspora.
Wide ranging and interdisciplinary, this collection considers critical concepts shaping the field, such as migration, ethnicity, post-colonialism and cosmopolitanism. It also examines key intersecting agendas and themes, including political economy, security, race, gender and material and electronic culture. Original case studies of contemporary as well as clasical diasporas are featured, mapping new directions in research and testing the usefulness of diaspora for analysing the complexity of transnational lives today.

Professor Kim Knott is the director of the Diasporas, Migration and Identities Programme of the University of Leeds.
