Title
Imagining Ethnicity: Role of the Montreal Bangladeshi Press in Ethnic Cohesion
Abstract
The author examines the relationship between uses of the Bangladeshi immigrant press in Montreal and the establishment of a community through the reinforcement of its readers’ ethnic identity. The two Bangladeshi newspapers studied are Probashbangla and Banglabarta. The thesis argues that through the mediation and promotion of ethnic symbols, the Bangladeshi immigrant press provides its otherwise unconnected readers with the means to imagine their affiliation with the larger Bangladeshi community.
