Overview

Examines how traditional ideas of home, homeland and nation have been destabilized both by new patterns of migration and bynew communicatioin technologies which routinely trangress the symbolic boundaries around both the private household and the nation state.

Morley is intellectually ecumenical yet erudite in his engagement with urban geography, postmodernism, media studies, nationalism, technology, and audiences in search for a way of talking about the relationship between identity, media, and place.

Morley vividly describes and critically analyzes the operations, meanings, relationship, and circuits in which we constantly move near to and far from home. In this subtle and important book Morley has given us much to think about and in the process helped to set the tone and direction for the next generation of media scholarship (Herman Gray, UC Santa Cruz)
