Vanessa Bravo, an Assistant Professor in Elon University’s School of Communications, reviews Diaspora Online: Identity Politics and Romanian Migrants. The book analyzes the cultural and political expressions of Romanian migrants, as they are shared online, in diasporic websites. The book author explores the identity formation of Romanian migration, as well as their feelings of belonging, citizenship and political space – both online and “in the real world” – within the context of host countries reluctant to accept Romanian immigration even as it increased dramatically after the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989.
