Legacy Migration, Transborder Belongings, and Korean Peoplehood
In this chapter I provide an overview of the book and introduce its conceptual and theoretical articulations. Using the frameworks of affect and global modernity, I delineate the trajectories of mobility involved in later-generation diaspora Koreans’ migration to contemporary South Korea. This serves as a springboard for laying out theories of borders and belonging that help make sense of legacy migrants’ trajectories and experiences. In outlining the book’s chapters, I explain how each adds a new dimension of understanding to transborder belonging. I also suggest that four borders—social spaces, citizenship and nationality law, Korean as a heritage language, and family—intersect to make and remake the notion of Korean peoplehood.
