African Transnational Mobility in China: Africans on the Move

Author: Roberto Castillo, Assistant Professor, Department of Cultural Studies

Publisher: Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group


Considering the African presence in China from an ethnographic and cultural studies perspective, this book offers a new way to theorise contemporary and future forms of transnational mobilities while expanding our understandings around the transformations happening in both China and Africa. The author develops an original argument and new theoretical insights about the significance of the African presence in Guangzhou, and presents an invaluable case study for understanding particular modes of transnational mobility.
