Transglobality and Diasporic Temporality



This book focuses on American society as a transglobal nation and examines the temporal dimension of diasporic incorporation in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. It argues that immigrant neighborhoods are faced not only with issues of economic and political integration, but also are engaged in a sublime and relentless effort of harmonizing the cultural rhythms of their daily life with the hegemonic temporality of mainstream society. Although much energy has been spent in explaining the segregated or ghettoized space of ethnic communities,1 there is, in contrast, a dearth of data on the subalternization, genealogy, and inscription of minoritized temporalities in the structural and interactional organization of the multicultural American city.2
