This book is the first to focus specifically upon the relationship between refugees and intercultural transfer over an extensive period of time. Since circa 1830, a series of groups have made their way to Britain, beginning with exiles from the failed European revolutions of the mid-nineteenth century and ending with refugees who have increasingly come from beyond Europe. The book addresses four specific questions. First, what roles have individuals or groups of refugees played in cultural and political transfers to Britain since 1830? Second, can we identify a novel form of cultural production which differs from that in the homeland? Third, to what extent has dissemination within and transformation of the receiving culture occurred? Fourth, to what extent do refugee groups, themselves, undergo a process of cultural restructuring? The coverage of the individual essays ranges from high culture, through politics and everyday practices. The volume moves away from general perceptions of refugees as 'problem groups' and rather focuses on the way they have shaped, and indeed enriched, British cultural and political life. This book was previously published as a special issue of Immigrants and Minorities.

    squarespace is the only website builder referenced above that has built in website tools for podcasts. With Squarespace, you can also create blog posts, and sell digital products. The only downside is that their ecommerce check out (for selling digital products) only integrates with one payment processor (Stripe). But Stripe is quite popular and easy to set up, so shouldn't be a major hurdle.

      Also, name your image files in a very specific way. So don't name your image files generically, like "Image" for instance. If your image displays a Mac Air, then name the image file name to "Mac Air" or something like that. Be as specific as you can, as Google does assess the name of the file name when its trying to understand what the image file is about (not sure how much weigh they put on it, but it's not a lot of work to label files anyway).

Squarespace will answer emails in an our and with Wix, you can even schedule up phone support. Weebly also has reliable support as they usually get back to its users in a day or 2.
