For postcolonial lit, I’m thinking of writing my research essay on how, if at all, the methods of migration affect a person’s sense of cultural identity. That is, if voluntary migration (e.g. immigration) or involuntary migration (e.g. forced displacement) affects how someone views and regards their heritage, or country of origin.
It’s quite daunting, a big thing to tackle, and I’m not quite sure where to start or where to find resources. But hopefully my interest in it will be enough sustenance to see me through to the end!
