Recapturing ‘Home’: Chronicles of Italian Remigration Experiences
- Tuesday, June 9, 2020 from 10:00am to 11:00am
Professor Ada Giusti will talk about the research she conducted during her sabbatical leave. Her book-length project took her to Tuscany, where she sought to understand how women and men who lived abroad as immigrants for at least a decade experienced the phenomenon of permanent return to their native village. She explores:
- The determinant factors that pulled them to resettle in their native country.
- How they negotiated the concepts of ‘home’ and ‘identity’ as they navigated through the various transitions of the migration cycle--departure, residence in host country(ies), and remigration.
- How they cope(d) with the re-adaptation process.
