Contemporaneous Migration

Contemporaneous Migration

(p.86) 6 Contemporaneous Migration
Citizens in Motion

Elaine Lynn-Ee Ho

Stanford University Press

This chapter shows how the analytical framework of contemporaneous migration allows an examination of citizenship constellations that are forged across migration sites. It draws together key themes that emerge from this approach, namely on citizenship and territory, fraternity and alterity, and the co-constitution of time and space. The chapter further signals the new research directions that contemporaneous migration brings to overseas Chinese studies or research on the “Chinese diaspora,” and to the Chinese worldview of tianxia in relation to notions of cosmopolitanism. It also sets out the methods through which contemporaneous migration can be studied.

Keywords:   cosmopolitanism, developmental aspirations, citizenship constellations, hierarchies of difference, later life migration, life course, migration and periodization, research methods
