Where and what is “home” for the Arab migrant? Discuss in relation to two texts.

Texts: Barghouti, Mourid. I Saw Ramallah. Trans. Ahdaf Soueif. New York: Anchor Books, 2003. AND Matar, Hisham. In the Country of Men. London: Viking, 2011. Critically engage with two of the module texts Clearly relate the selected texts to one or more of the contemporary intellectual concerns, cultural dynamics and/or geopolitical realities of the Arab world Identify and describe the differences and overlaps of exilic, diasporic and refugee experiences that are relevant to the chosen texts Demonstrate good command of an adequate and relevant critical language What is home? Where is home? How do we define the term ‘home’? How do we know where home is? How do we define what a refugee is? How do we define what a migrant is? What is home in the two texts? Where is home in the two texts? Where and how to the characters in each book see themselves and where they are? When we go somewhere we go in different ways and we go to different places that are not always the place that we go to. We go to places in our heads, in our hearts in the people around us in our politics in our beliefs and values and in time. When reading you are mainly looking for evidence (in own words) of the nature of the ‘new’ home. Always answer ‘where’ are they really?? How does The UN define what a refugee is? How does The UN define what a migrant is? Why did they leave their ‘homes’? They find migration much more preferable to a life in their country away from the looming threat of violence or in the shadow of an oppressive regime. Immigration is never an easy option: leaving people and places behind always comes at a painful price. Answer the question straight away and throughout the essay. Both book’s PDF is attached. I attached the following secondary materials to be included in the essay: 1) I saw Ramallah: Foreword by Edward Saïd 2) PDF of author Hisham Matar's Own Exile Echoes in 'Country of Men'. 3) Each book’s handouts with critical quotes.

How to write an ethnography?
<p>Before we elaborate on how to write an ethnography, we need to understand what it is. The word &quot;ethnography&quot; has a Greek origin. &quot;Ethos&quot; means people, and &quot;graphic&quot; means to write. It is a tool used in social sciences, such as cultural anthropology. It is a detailed description based on different social aspects and patterns within a culture. It focuses on using research methods from social sciences to explain the uniqueness in human behaviors and experiences.&nbsp;</p>
