Transnationalism in Micheal Ondaatje’s Select Novels.
Keywords:Transcultural identities, multiculturalism, displacement and homelessness, transnationalism.
The history of human civilization is closely intertwined with that of human migration first in Africa, then across Asia and Europe and finally to the Americas. More than any other social phenomenon, migration has induced global events of far reaching consequences throughout the history. As a result, it has become an interdisciplinary research interest, sprawling across the academics of history, geography, economics, political science, sociology, anthropology, literature, cultural studies and so on. However, the advent of transnationalism in the late 1980s brought about a transformation in the concept of migration. The present paper offers to study how these transnational migrant practices feature in the three select novels of the Sri Lankan Canadian migrant author Michael Ondaatje.
