From exile to post-exile: the diasporisation of Swedish Chileans in historical contexts
The main focus of this article is how a set of practices revolve around the formation of an imagined community in dispersion - diasporisation. The study discusses the case of the Chilean diaspora in Sweden and its transformation from an exile context to a post-exile context facing a drastically altered historical situation. This transformation is analysed as a matter of agency where practices are framed differently as a response to the demand perceived in the context. The outcome of this argument speaks in favour of a diaspora concept that focuses on practices and how these are framed in order to mobilise a putative dispersed population.
