Question of Multiple Identity of Second Generation of Croatian Diaspora in Canada Late modernism (light modernism/postmodernism) is defined by processes of globalization and modernization, which demands new inquiry of ethnicity and diaspora's perception in scientific discourse. Although theories of modernization have anticipated annihilation of particularistic forms of identity, just the opposite had happened: annihilation of colonialism and socialistic regimes in countries of Eastern Block, as revolution in transport and telecommunication's services affected 'ethnical revival' , resulting in emphasizing ethnicity as important field of scientific exploration in humanity and social sciences. Perception of diasporas have also changed and those characteristics of diaspora's being percieved as negative in host countries are now considered to be virtues in contemporary, cosmopolit society. Identity of diaspora, especially that of second generation is built on several cultural and social fields and it's often hyphanated, hybrid, creole, sincretic and points out that ethnicity is not static and coherent characteristic, but rather process which consist of both subjective and objective dimension that transcends borders of nation- state.
