Lenise Williams: Transnationalism and migrant generational concepts of home

These maps do not intend to be geographically accurate but rather function as a depiction of how these spaces are thought of in my own head. They compare the mental maps of my home town with the town I moved to for university; with an attempt to understand how transnationalism impacts the way I conceptualise ‘home’. These maps show how spaces that relate to my ethnicity (cultural identity) as opposed to my nationality often invoked feelings of belonging, despite being a third-generation migrant. In short in attempts to depict how generational migrants can live across and between borders without physically having to cross the border.
