Summary/Abstract: The author considers the definition of the concept of the diaspora in a changing and globalised world. In doing so, he focuses on its recent articulation and outlines a map of the application of the concept itself as well as its limits in studies dealing with diasporas, drawing particular attention to the political and historical embroilment of diaspora-oriented discourses. Furthermore, he examines types of experiences described as diasporic and those which are rejected, marginalised and supplanted.
