Abstract

The aim of this essay is twofold: to elaborate the diaspora-glocalization link, and to bring the overspecialized study of diasporas closer to the ongoing debate in the mainstream social sciences about the global, the glocal, and the local developments in the contemporary world. The empirical part of the paper consists of two sets of analyses: I first comparatively consider the transformative effects of turn-of-the-last-century vs. contemporary émigrés’ activities on the receiver, American society and their homelands, and, next, I examine this impact of differently positioned groups among the latter. The information about these groups and their influence on the receiver- and sender-country people and institutions comes from my longitudinal historical-sociological study of past and present immigration in the United States.
