Migrants are frequently represented as outsiders in literature, powerless and vulnerable. Our panel is rewriting tropes of migration in groundbreaking ways, granting agency to people on the move and as they settle and grow roots in new places. By reframing these stories of social exclusion, suddenly migrants are the new insiders.

Para migran sering digambarkan sebagai orang luar dalam karya sastra, tidak berdaya, dan rentan. Panel kami sedang menulis ulang kiasan migrasi dengan cara inovatif, memberikan dorongan kepada orang-orang yang bergerak dan sebagaimana saat mereka menetap dan menumbuhkan akar di tempat baru. Dengan membingkai ulang kisah-kisah pengucilan sosial ini, tiba tiba saja para migran ini menjadi orang dalam baru.
