The journal provides a platform that theorizes the complexities of the concept of diaspora for clarity and relevance in the twenty-first century and to advance our understanding of the migratory experiences of diaspora people including their media consumption patterns, projection of their voices on civic issues/international conflicts and engagement with communities, agencies and governments at home and host nations.  

It is evident from the title that the journal has a global scope covering a wide geographical spread from Latin America, Global North, North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. GDM welcomes submissions that are theoretically informed and empirically grounded as well as studies that examine country-specific or comparative case-studies. We are looking for cross-disciplinary work with journalism, communication, cross-cultural research, social psychology, media policy, politics and film studies that investigate the representation of diasporic life and experiences from an interdisciplinary approach. Submissions should be methodologically rigorous and could be either qualitative or quantitative or both.

In addition to scholarly articles, GDM will provide a forum for journalists to share ideas and experiences about aspects of journalism practice with scholars and the wider community. This critical reflective piece should adopt situated approaches rooted in journalism practice. Moreover, GDM will publish reviews of books, films, music, exhibitions and photography on diaspora related topics, interviews with diaspora associations and agencies. Please email the principal editor at oogunyemi@lincoln.ac.uk to submit a manuscript or for any further enquiries.
