    Book synopsis: To mark the culmination of the Oxford Diasporas Programme, we have created a collection of essays designed to showcase the breadth as well as cohesion of our research on diasporas. Featuring contributions from 45 authors, this collection is free to download as a PDF, either as a complete collection or as individual essays. This collection, titled Diasporas Reimagined: Spaces, Practices and Belonging, is a series of accessible and thought-provoking snapshots brought together to illustrate the vitality and variety of research on diasporas. Drawing on a range of disciplines, including social anthropology, sociology, human geography, politics, international relations, development studies and history, Diasporas Reimagined depicts a world increasingly interconnected through migration, where sediments of previous encounters coexist in places, practices and personal and collective identities. Put together, this collection of photo essays and ethnographic vignettes, theoretical ruminations and poetic interventions, literature overviews and empirically-based reflections aims to provoke new ways of thinking, both about diasporas and about some of the foundational concepts of social science.
