The subject of contemporary migrant identity — where do you call ‘home’ and where do you feel you ‘belong’ — is something that as a migrant from Trinidad to the UK I’ve often thought about. For people who travel back and forth between places, how do we define ourselves? If, after spending much of your lifetime living in another country, you still say I’m a Trinidadian or Nigerian, or Canadian, or Pakistani etc. What does that mean?
Dreams in Transit is a personal reflection around this subject using a hybrid, poetic style in order to shed a fresh light on these key questions.
