Homing Interview #10: Nancy Foner
Conducted by Paolo Boccagni and Sara Bonfanti, on 9th May 2018 in Trento.
“In truth, migrants often have romanticized views of home. These views may provide comfort in the migrant setting when they, like Jamaicans in London and New York, experience disappointments and prejudice and discrimination. But if they do actually return, they face a home that is less ideal than they remembered and that often has undergone significant change since”.
