Example text

The area of state-supported arts practice, while it has been subject to significant democratisation for a generation (with clear examples such as the Community Arts Board of the Australia Council), remains some considerable distance from the popular media activity documented in this book. This disparity between state-supported programs and the popular culture of minorities is an international Diasporas and the Media 31 phenomenon. The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the major federal arts funding body in the United States, has found it very difficult to attract minority applicants, "so profound is their alienation from organs of governance, which are seen to police them, and service others" (Miller, 2000, citing Gilmore, 1993: 159).

With the partial exception, for particular reasons, of the Thais, every diaspora treated in this book is seen as a collocation of class, ethnic, origination, education, work and financial configurations, whose status as a "community" is the product of strategic unities and alliances, sometimes engendered more from without than within, rather than ethnic "essences". A glance over the theoretical and research literature published under the rubric of "diaspora" during the 1980s and 1990s shows how the discourse itself is "loose in the world" (Clifford, 1994: 306).

Like other diasporic groups, Anglo-Celtic proletarians have had to deal culturally with displacement and longing for home, but without the same kind of exclusion from the dominant group experienced by, to take a pertinent case in point, immigrants of Asian origin in Australia. Even the great diasporas from continental European countries, notably the German, Italian and Greek, have been fairly readily absorbed into their host societies, relative to those from the postcolonial world. Ultimately, however, the value of drawing attention to the proletarian dimension of European colonisation and settlement is to underscore the point that ethnic similarities and common cultural provenance can conceal other kinds Diasporas and the Media 15 of social difference.
