Sample text

The emigration of the 1980s/90s was triggered by an abrupt deterioration of the economic, social and political situation in ex-Yugoslavia during the 1980s. Young urban professionals with high expectations suddenly faced shortages of consumer goods, huge inflation, unemployment, low salaries and an increasingly unstable political situation. Education, the main channel of social mobility in post-war Croatia, became a cul-de-sac. By this time, Western European countries were much less welcoming to Southern Europeans, so overseas countries, and primarily Australia, became a more realistic immigration target.

More widely dispersed and probably older national and ethnic migrant groups constituting a diaspora whose attachment to a homeland is more symbolic in nature and whose members have become assimilated to various degrees into one or more host societies. The Italian Canadians discussed by Fortier in Chapter 7 as well as the older, established communities of Greek Americans briefly discussed by Roudometof and Karpathakis in Chapter 3 provide examples of such groups. Communities (mostly but not entirely) of meaning cohering around shared lifestyle orientations and practices involving aesthetic, affective bonds and understandings such as sport, celebrity, musical and artistic followings and fanzines.

The tension between them tended to ease as the war in the homeland halted in the mid-1990s and the political situation normalised. What an outsider’s gaze usually identifies as a single ‘Croatian community’ is in fact a conglomerate of diverse groups: some of them tightly knit and some only loosely connected; some formalised in associations and clubs and some entirely informal and private. The divisions within these groups run along political as well as class lines. The two cohorts of Croatians whom I am dealing with in this chapter form not only separate but also thoroughly different migrant communities.
