A "condition of homelessness" or a "state of double consciousness"? Turkish migrants and home-making in Australia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article sketches out the shifting images and meanings of home as they are articulated by Turkish immigrants in Sydney. Rather than answering the question “which country is more 'home' than another?”, I investigate the issue of what makes any particular place home. The latter question has the potential to explore the idiosyncrasy of the experience of home as a fluid, shifting and contextual phenomenon. The narratives of Turkish migrants reveal that migration is not a process producing homelessness; instead it brings about multiple contexts that extend across spaces and evoke continuity and discontinuity with a past life.
