Abstract

In this thesis, I examine the relationship between the diasporic community and (home-host) states through the idea of territorialization, as developed by Deleuze and Guattari. I argue that the ways in which the Sangir diasporic community in the southern Philippines negotiates its position with home and host countries, creates a dynamic, fluid, and multilayered relationship between community and states. The negotiation of the Sangir diasporic community can be seen from their understanding of territory, identity, and citizenship. I emphasize the diasporics' narratives and their identification of cultural territory, identity, and belonging.
