about

Examining identity in relation to globalization and migration, this book uses narratives and memoirs from contemporary authors who have lived "in-between" two or more languages. It explores the human desire to find one's "own place" in new cultural contexts, and looks at the role of language in shaping a sense of belonging in society.
