Post-Migration Literature and Changing Family Roles in the Netherlands

    Activity: Talk and presentationAcademic presentationAcademic


    Due to the social, cultural and linguistic changes involved, migration affects established family patterns in different ways, e.g. children assuming a mediating role for their illiterate parents and women facing new opportunities. In this session, we will explore these changing roles in one of the most highly acclaimed recent novels in the Dutch literary field: Wees onzichtbaar (Be invisible) by Dutch-Turkish writer Murat Isik (2017). Moreover, we will draw parallels with changing family representations in post-migration literature in other countries.
