Description


A study of the unique experiences of South Asian migrants in Toronto. 
 
Twice Migrated, Twice Displaced reveals the multiple migration patterns of Indian and Pakistani migrants via Persian Gulf countries, and the class, gender, racial, and religious discrimination they encounter both during their journey and upon arrival in Canada. Tania Das Gupta shows how neoliberal economies in Canada, South Asia, and the Persian Gulf divide families across borders by devaluing labor and dismantling public welfare. The hybrid identities that result, Gupta argues, should change how we think about community building, class mobility, discrimination, and citizenship in an increasingly transnational world.
