Migration, Digital Media and Emotion

How are relations of intimacy and care at a distance articulated and experienced through social media? What does it mean to imagine home as a digitally mediated experience? In what unexpected ways are platforms reshaping migrant subjectivities? This collection brings together key themes that integrate the scholarship on migration, digital media, and emotion.

    Drawing from a variety of conceptual, theoretical, and methodological traditions that cross-cut academic disciplines, the articles in this issue explore the emotional facets of digitally mediated migrant socialities in a variety of socio-cultural and geographic locales. These examinations raise questions about how digital media ubiquity shapes global migration experiences and multicultural media publics at various scales.
