Description based on CIP data; resource not viewed.

Tech companies such as Google, Amazon, and Microsoft promote the free flow of data worldwide, while relying on foreign temporary IT workers to build, deliver and support their products.

However, even as IT companies use technology and commerce to transcend national barriers, their transnational employees face significant migration and visa constraints.

In this revealing ethnography, Amy Bhatt shines a spotlight on Indian IT migrants and their struggles to navigate career paths, citizenship and belonging as they move between South Asia and the United States.
