Description - Projecting Migration by Alan Grossman
Migration has rapidly become a fundamental component of modern life and increasingly determines who we are and how we define ourselves today. "Projecting Migration" is a groundbreaking multimedia book/DVD-ROM project that attempts to understand the phenomena of mobility and displacement through essays, films, photography and audio recordings. Contributors have been on the ground in locations as diverse as the US/Mexico border, southern Africa, Lebanon and Ireland, and each chapter is linked with DVD chapters of original footage, resulting in a dynamic account of migrant narratives which circumvent the distorting lens of news journalism. This cross-media collection - created in collaboration with the Centre for Transcultural Research and Media Practice at the Dublin Institute of Technology - marks a major transdisciplinary contribution to contemporary debates on migration.
