Summary "The peer-reviewed essays presented in this interdisciplinary volume explore the many facets of migration and the consequences of displacement on the lives of those individuals who undertake the experience. The volume analyses how migrants both experience and express the complex nature of migration, and how this significant event affects and transforms individual lives and communities. In discussing the migratory experience, the authors explore historical and contemporary, overseas and transnational, 'forced' and 'voluntary' migrations. They also utilise multiple sources, including historical and archival research, oral testimony, literature, film, radio, sites of memory, material culture and the analysis of discourse narratives. The title of the volume, Imagining Home: Migrants and the search for a new belonging, reflects the many ways that the notions of 'home' and 'belonging' can question and redefine each other." -- Cover description
