About this book

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.

Reviews

"The study presented in the book is interesting for its interdisciplinary or, more precisely, transdisciplinary outlook and the insightful stories that may be creatively re-interpreted by different readers/scholars. It thus contributes not only to such fields as (linguistic or literary) anthropology and second-language acquisition, but is also a very enlightening source for literary studies, diaspora studies, (cross-)cultural studies, place studies, translation studies, language philosophy, and so on." - Hou-Song, Zhejiang University, China
