Bangladeshi writing in English is an emerging field, which is expanding through some writers from within Bangladesh and others living in various countries as diaspora.

We understand diasporas as “migrants or descendants of migrants, whose identity and sense of belonging have been shaped by their migration experience and background.” (IOM Glossary on Migration, 2019). While the term was originally used to describe the forced displacement of certain peoples, nowadays, we use it more in sense of taxonomy or 'groupification' of people on the basis of region, religion, or nationality. What is the overall effect of 'diaspora' in the overall sense of 'belonging' or 'discrimination' for those who left their native places in search of livelihood?
"A group of people who live outside the area in which they had lived for a long time or in which their ancestors lived." is the explanation for the term Diaspora.
Indian diaspora” has one of the world's most diverse and complex immigration histories. Since the 1700th century, ethnic Indians have established communities on every continent as well as on islands in the Caribbean and the Pacific and Indian oceans. the Indo-Canadian community is arguably the largest Indian diaspora in the world and the second-largest immigrant group in Canada. India has a long history of immigration to Canada dating back to 1800s. currently 13.4 percent immigrants to Canada comprises of Indians which is second only to Philippines. In this context this paper seeks to examine the contribution of immigrants, particularly, Indian immigrants in the economy of Canada.

Under the current political climate, we have an unusual commonality that seems to arise as a direct result of Trumpism and Netanyahu led Likud dominance marching in step with one another. This relationship appears to be symbiotic.
While the politics du jour favor each other, there are skeptics who warn us that it may backfire.
I ask you: what is your opinion?

What do you think is the likely trend in the future?
Researchers generally focus the writings of Meena Alexander and Sujata Bhatt through Diaspora; some of them focus her writings in diasporic perspectives. This thesis sense of the social issues dealt by her in selected poems. The researcher also met experts to collect the useful material for the present study. The research work has been conducted by research scholars on Indian Diaspora studies, expatriate studies as well as under the study of Indian literature in English. Several articles and reviews have been featured in various journals and anthologies in India, U.S., and England on her poetry, novels and memoir.

I am trying to look for whether the use of the biological theory of race has reduced or transnationalism has a different way of classifying people into different categories (e.g. diasporas, ethnicity, or geographic origin of the migrants, etc.,) with distinct status and power!
I am trying to understand the impact of the contemporary global market economy on international migration and immigration policies of the Western countries.

This is a matter of cultural cross-fertilization: how far can it be effectuated? What are the new hybrid creations forged in Britain and accepted by mainstream British culture?
I am not a believer just an observer, but I have long relations with the Islamic world and I have noticed changes on the periphery of Islam, one being a greater willingness to discuss matters with other cultures, a less fixed approach, no matter recent developments in the Middle East (which itself can be seen as a reaction to globalisation), and also a re-structuring and re-embedding of Islamic ideologies through Western ideas.
I believe that with the present Moslem diaspora this is a crucial time for a religion that for over a thousand years has shielded itself from other cultures' views, claimed at times the superiority of its views as those given by god, and rarely engaged in mutual dialogue (others may not agree).

while translating any text, in India,most of the translators take liberty in inserting their own ideas according to the contemporary situation. Classical Sanskrit texts of times immemorial still are being translated into regional languages in India.one text like Ramayana is being translated into Telugu, a regional language in India by 200 translators. I want to know in western countries do they accept if any translator make any change in the theme of the Source Language while adopting it into Target Language.
I am interested in studying narratives from Latin America (esp. Mexico) focusing on topics such as money, precarity, debt, esp. from the years from the external debt crisis to present.

I know novels such as Piglia’s Plata quemada, Gumucio’s La deuda, Ortuño’s Recursos Humanos and films such as Amores perros, El baño del Papa, 7 cajas, La deuda (Oliver's Deal)...

I wonder if I can interpret the termination of conflict as a political opportunity arising in the homeland which can be interpreted by diasporas as an opportunity/threat in order to mobilize.

I'm working on Nigerians in London and I have been interchangeably using the term community and diaspora to refer to over 50,000 nigerians who reside in the city of London.

Although immigration processes are usually analyzed as a part of international relations the existence of immigrant and ethnic minority issues as a part of the political interactions between
two countries seem to be usually underestimated. Those interactions might be partially influenced by diaspora policy.
