Bringing together the voices of nine individuals from an archive of over 200 in-depth interviews with transnational migrants and refugees across five European countries, Finding Home in Europe critically engages with how home is experienced by those who move. Subaltern migrants and refugees speak out, conceptually engaging with the political strength of their voices as this volume seeks to combat the notion that these people are ‘out of place’ or cannot claim their right to belong.
Luis Eduardo Pérez Murcia holds a PhD in Development Studies from the University of Manchester and has recently finished a three-year postdoc position at the HOMInG Project, University of Trento. Recent publications include “Physically sheltered but existentially homeless:” (Migration Studies 2021), “Remaking a place called home following displacement” in Routledge Handbook of Place (Routledge, 2020), Thinking Home on the Move (Emerald Publishing, 2020) and “Where the heart is and where it hurts” (Refugee Survey Quarterly 2019).
Sara Bonfanti is a migration scholar, expert on South Asian diasporas. She gained a PhD in Social Anthropology in 2015 conducting multi-site ethnography between Italy and India to analyze generational change among Punjabi transnational families. She is a visiting fellow at M.P.I. for the Study of Religious & Ethnic Diversity, and since 2017 she's collaborated within the comparative ERC-HOMInG project based at Trento University.
