The concept of the public sphere appears too monolithic when accounting for the pluralistic cultures of diasporic communities that constitute public spheres within and across a particular place.


  1. How do physical diasporas with a critical mass of a population differ from those that are connected by media?
  2. How did the Vietnamese communities in Australia use music videos to connect to their homeland?
  3. How does media allow for public sphere activities to occur for a displaced, diasporic populations, such as the Vietnamese and Fijian immigrants in Australia?
