Abstract:Moving beyond the 'push and pull' framework that has dominated studies of African migration to the global North, this collection instead looks at African transnational migrations against the backdrop of rapid globalization. It contains 11 chapters: Transnational Africa and globalization: introduction (Mojbol Olfnk Okome, Olufemi Vaughan0; Africa, transnationalism, and globalization: an overview (Olufemi Vaughan); Black internationalism and transnational Africa (Roderick Bush); What about the reciprocity? Pan-Africanism and the promise of global development (Mora McLean); Transnational Africa un-pledging allegiance: the US nation must make the African connection (Melanie E.L. Bush); Pan-Africanizing philanthropy: toward a social theory of an emerging sector (Jacqueline Copeland-Carson); 'I am the bridge between two worlds': transnational connections among Darfurians in Maine (Lacy Andrews Gale); The changing face of African Christianity: reverse mission in transnational and global perspectives (Jacob K. Olupona); Gendered migrations: African identities and globalization (Anthonia C. Kalu); A matter of habit: unraveling the teaching-learning knot (Namulundah Florence); and Undocumented labor migration from Morocco to Europe: an African perspective (Moha Ennaji).
