What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book, well grounded in scholarly ethnography, provides valuable new insights that help us go beyond traditional research on the Iranian diaspora by foregrounding social media and the material dimensions of digital communication. In particular, Alinejad’s concept of ‘digital styles’ highlights the various modes through which inherited and collectively developed notions of identity are played out amongst second-generation Iranian-Americans through social media and web applications.” (Daniel Miller, University College London, UK)

“The children of immigrants in the United States are growing up in a digital age, yet there are no scholarly books on this timely topic. Furthermore, traditional research on social networks may underestimate the role of the internet among the second generation. As the first case study of how Iranian diasporic youth negotiate their ethnic and racial identities in a digitally connected world, this book makes an important contribution to the burgeoning literature on the second generation.” (Mehdi Bozorgmehr, City University of New York, USA)


“Alinejad’s volume is a welcome addition to debates around migration, media, race, and identity. Drawing on a multidisciplinary body of literature, it provides an empirical account of diasporic media practices and lived experiences.” (Miyase Christensen, Stockholm University; KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden)
