Telling Diaspora Stories: theoretical and methodological reflections on narratives of migrancy and belongingness in the second generation
Keywords:diaspora, second generation, return migration, identity, Greece, life stories, narrative
This article explores the theoretical and methodological implications of the study of second generation migration through the use of life stories, a narrative and biographical approach. It presents a theoretical contextualisation of life history research in addressing the direction it has taken in the study of migration and identity in order to problematise how the subject and subjectivities in narrative research have been framed by social categorisations such as gender, ethnicity, class as well as social experiences such as trauma, exile, memory and imagination. The paper develops the analytical contribution of researching the biographicity of everyday migrant lives.
