From 2009-2011, post-docs Jasmijn van Gorp and Louise Mueller carried out a pilot-study on media use among migrants from Ghana now living in the Bijlmer and from the former Yugoslavia (refugee women) as part of the research project Media and Diaspora. They discovered that contemporary media, from television to photo and film, to social-networking sites, played an important role in shaping the identities of both communities but also that there were significant differences between them. A summary of their report is available through our website. This project will also lead to an exhibition and a seminar: "Media, Visibility and Diasporas in The Netherlands," in co-operation with Imagine IC, Amsterdam, scheduled for September 2011.
