This book takes on current perspectives on children’s relationships to literacy, media, childhood, markets and transtionalism in converging global worlds. It introduces the idea of multi-sited imaginaries to explain how children’s media and literacy performances shape and are shaped by shared visions of communities that we collectively imagine, including play, media, gender, family, school, or cultural worlds. It draws upon elements of ethnographies of globalization, nexus analysis and performance theories to examine the convergences of such imaginaries across multiple sites: early childhood and elementary classrooms and communities in Puerto Rico and the Midwest United States. In this work we attempt to understand that the local moment of engagement within play, dramatic experiences, and literacies is not a given but is always emerging from and within the multiple localities children navigate and the histories, possibilities and challenges they bring to the creative moment.

Combining language research with digital, multimodal, and critical literacy, this book uniquely positions issues of transcultural spaces and cosmopolitan identities across an array of contexts. Studies of everyday diasporic practices across places, spaces, and people’s stories provide authentic pictures of people living in and with diversity. Its distinctive contribution is a framework to relate observation and analysis of these flows to language development, communication, and meaning making. Each chapter invites readers to reflect on the dynamism and complexity of spaces and contexts in an age of increasing mobility, political upheaval, economic instabilities, and online/offline landscapes.

Globalisierungsforschung hat Politik, Ökonomie, Kultur und Kommunikation, Migration, Umweltthemen, Recht und militärische Angelegenheiten zum Gegenstand, aber es gibt ein auffälliges Forschungsdefizit darüber, wie Globalisierung die Forschung und ihre Praktiken verändert. Der vorliegende Band ist Ausdruck des Versuchs, einer veränderten Forschungspraxis Rechnung zu tragen. Aus einem öffentlichen Vortrag von Susan Robertson an der Universität Fribourg, ist ein wissenschaftlicher Dialog zwischen Susan Robertson (University of Bristol), Edgar Forster und Doris Gödl (Universität Fribourg) entstanden. Der Beitrag von Robertson, der hier erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegt, fokussiert auf die Dynamik des Begriffspaares absences und imaginings in der herrschenden Wissensproduktion. Globalisierungsforschung, so ein wichtiges Fazit, ist nur als reflexives Projekt möglich. Denn nur dann kann etwas entstehen, was nicht schon in unserem Denken vorweggenommen ist.
