Floating Lives is a unique examination of media and communication within diasporic ethnic communities, using in-depth studies of some of Australia's main Asian diasporic groups: the Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese, and Thai communities. Going beyond conventional cross-cultural studies of mainstream media consumption, this book explores the ethnic community as a determining force in negotiating new hybrid identities and cultures―and demonstrates experiences common to diasporic communities worldwide.

About the Author:

John Sinclair is professor in the Department of Communication, Language, and Cultural Studies at Victoria University of Technology in Melbourne.

Review:

The first detailed study of the topic. . . . To be congratulated for providing all-too-rare insights to [emigrant communities'] worlds-within-worlds [and] the media that connects them with 'home.' (Southern Cross)

Floating Lives transcends its analysis of diasporic groups in Australia to provide insights applicable to diasporas in any country. A vital contribution to television studies and to our understanding of cross-cultural communication, this book is destined to be a classic. (Miller, Toby)

This excellent book . . . represents an important trend in cultural and media studies, not just towards a more ethnographic approach to the consumption of media texts, but also towards a recognition of the complexity of the cultural flows operating both locally and globally. (Media International Australia)

The first detailed study of the topic. . . . To be congratulated for providing all-too-rare insights to [emigrant communities'] worlds-within-worlds [and] the media that connects them with 'home.''''' (Southern Cross)
