  • Revathy Sivasubramaniam Assistant Professor, Department of English, Chellammal Women‟s College, Chennai, India,


Utilizing the conceptual framework of transnationalism, the paper attempts to gain insights into the transnational lives of African migrants through the novelAmericanah by ChimamandaNgoziAdichie. The paper, specifically, seeks to throw light on the issue of identity construction upon migration and also upon return to the home country. It contends that the identity of transnational migrants is fluid and it is constantly in a state of flux given the sustained, cross-border ties the migrants have with their homeland.
