Small-Town Transnationalism: Socio-Spatial Dynamics of Immigration to the Heartland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Existing literature has well documented the social and spatial dynamics of global capitalism in large metropolitan centers and global cities. Fewer paid attention to, however, spaces outside these focal centers: namely, the small towns in the belly of the beast-that is, the heart of global capitalism for agricultural and food production. The contribution I hope to make to the present volume is bringing into focus these marginalized spaces in the discussion of transnationalism and urbanism-and begin the discussion of what might be called the transnationalism of small towns.
