In recognition of the significance of the study of global diasporas for humanities scholars and social scientists alike, a national conference was organized in 1999 by the Border and Transcultural Studies Research Circle at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an interdisciplinary research circle focused on intercultural contact and the flows of people, culture, information, and capital in global and historical perspectives. This conference, ‘Global Diasporas: Communities of Exile and Migration’, explored the phenomenon of global diasporas from a range of historical and disciplinary perspectives and across the geographical terrain of various area studies fields.
