Zitat: Centre-periphery

Im contrast to centre-periphery models, alternative representations of digital humanities have offered new representations of global digital humanities that change the hierarchies of centres and peripheries through a logic of diaspora. From the Greek dia (across) and speirein (to scatter), a “diaspora” is by definition a scattering across the world of people who emerged from a point of origin but have dispersed. (…) the term “diaspora” has become more widely used as global migrations accelerated, often to refer broadly to communities dispersed from a point of origin.
