Homecomings: Unsettling Paths of Return

Homecomings: Unsettling Paths of Return

Lynellyn D. Long, an independent consultant, reviews Homecomings:Unsettling Paths of Return. The book is about return migration, specifically the concept of homecoming. The author defines homecomings as “future-oriented social projects based on attachment to natal or ancestral homelands which lead to dramatic encounters in these places.” The book also explores how while homecomings are usually idealized, they can evoke conflicting emotions and family relationships.
