Forms of Migration: Global Perspectives on Im/migrant Art and Literature
Maneval, Stefan, Reimer, Jennifer A. – 2022
Forms of Migration explores the potential of art, literary and other forms of expression to shape our understanding of transnational migration. Addressing im/migrant culture around the globe, this book is a rich, illustrated collection of essays, poetry, creative nonfiction, interviews, and visual material. Written from a large variety of disciplines, it includes analyses of diasporic fashion, cinema, literature, performances, mixed media installations, painting and photography. Forms of Migration shows how innovative storytelling and art offer a chance to apprehend migration differently, to grasp the complexity of migration processes and to challenge common perceptions of im/migrant experiences.
