Book Review: Home, Belonging and Memory in Migration: Leaving and Living

I want to begin by thanking Sadan and Pushpendra for putting together this wonderful new volume on what migration emotions entail in colonial, and postcolonial contemporary South Asia. This volume consists of fourteen erudite, and epistemically-grounded articles divided into four sub-sections that begin with describing the discursive production of freedom as a migrant narrative. Further sub-sections discuss how experiencing gender emerges through labour migration, and how emotional longing among migrants can be both constructed as well as deconstructed. The last section investigates the importance of urban spaces, memory, and how migration experiences re-create multiple belonging.
