HOSPITALITY AND THE LEBANESE DIASPORA: A CRITICAL PERSPECTIVE
Diasporas are rarely analysed from a hospitality perspective. The paper reviews and expands on existent literature regarding the Lebanese Diaspora and focuses on the Lebanese Diaspora in London. The paper discusses the conditional and absolute notions of hospitality in relation to western and non-western cultural norms. Hospitality is thus examined from a cultural perspective in order to understand methods of consumption. The ways in which the ‘early traditional Lebanese migrant’ and the ‘modern recent Lebanese migrant’ interact in terms of hospitality is analysed. The conclusions identify future avenues of research.
Keywords: Lebanon; Diaspora; Migration; Hospitality; UK
