A Life in the Sun: Accounts of New Lives Abroad as Intercultural Narratives
Beaven, Tita
Language and Intercultural Communication, v7 n3 p188-202 Aug 2007
Through an analysis of three settler narratives about new lives in Spain, Stewart (1999), Kerr (2000) and Lambert (2000), the paper explores three elements of these intercultural narratives that contribute to the formation of the settler's new sociocultural identity: the physical environment, explorations of the other through signs of the settler's adaptation and the redefinitions of the self this intercultural encounter often implies. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
