The UCLA Library’s International & Area Studies (IAS) Department presents Diasporas: Transnational Migrations, Spaces, and Identities. This six-part program series explores the various reasons for migration, the experiences of migrants and their descendants, the creation of communities in their new homelands, the negotiation of identities and belonging, and the preservation and transformation of traditions. For details, refer to the series guide.  

Traditions are closely tied to specific environments and cultures, and emigrants are disconnected from these when they move. This program explores how diasporas preserve, transform, or amalgamate cultural practices in their new countries.
