ethnoscape (plural ethnoscapes)

  1. a transnational distribution of correlated people

Related terms[edit]


In the anthropology of globalization, the suffix "-scape" signifies transnational distributions of correlated elements whose display can be represented as landscapes. For example, transnational arrangements of technological, financial, media, and political resources can be seen, respectively, as technoscapes, financescapes, mediascapes, and ideoscapes (Appadurai 1996 :33). The prefix "ethno-" refers to "people" rather than stricly to "ethnicity."
