Ethnic Studies Review
In Georges Woke Up Laughing: Long-Distance Nationalism and the Search for Home, Nina Glick Schiller and Georges Eugene Fouron theorize new ways of thinking about nationality and citizenship within a global context, focusing on Haiti and its diaspora. The authors discuss recent debates about transnationalism and the changing notions of citizenship across national boundaries and further research on the subject by Michel Laguerre, Rainer Bauböck, Aihwa Ong, Glick Schiller, Linda Basch, and Cristina Szanton Blanc. It is evident that the nature of their work necessitates a subjective methodology, and this becomes part of the book's analyses. Combining autobiography with ethnographic field research, and qualitative, collaborative analysis, the authors incisively reveal their personal and political investments in the work.
