Chapter Summary

The sociological literature on diaspora tends to specify its structural position in society in terms of its integration as an ethnic group, its interface with the hostland, its ability to maintain a distinct ethnic identity, and its multiple relations with the homeland for the purpose of strengthening national, familial, and social ties necessary for the preservation and survival of the community's culture and traditions. This chapter analyzes some of the production mechanisms of the transglobal network nation. The homeland and diaspora are seen as architectural units of a much larger societal reality, where the rationale of their trajectories is tied up with the logic of the ensemble, outside of which their itineraries cannot be unbiasly unveiled. New infrastructures are established to sustain transnational processes that facilitate the permanent link of one site to another. In the transglobal network nation scheme, transit has acquired a new meaning.
