Diasporas and Diplomacy analyzes the exercise of British Ã¢ÂÂsoft powerÃ¢ÂÂ through the BBCÃ¢ÂÂs foreign language services, and the diplomatic role played by their diasporic broadcasters. The book offers the first historical and comparative analysis of the Ã¢ÂÂcorporate cosmopolitanismÃ¢ÂÂ that has characterized the work of the BBCÃ¢ÂÂs international services since the inception of its Empire Service in 1932 Ã¢ÂÂ from radio to the Internet.
A series of empirically-grounded case studies, within a shared analytical framework, interrogate transformations in international broadcasting relating to:
- colonialism and corporate cosmopolitanism
- diasporic and national identities
- public diplomacy and international relations
- broadcasters and audiences
The book will be of interest to students and scholars of sociology and anthropology, media and cultural studies, journalism, history, politics, international relations, as well as of research methods that cross the boundaries between the Social Sciences and Humanities. It will also appeal to broadcast journalists and practioners of strategic communication.
