Forms of Migration explores the potential of literary and aesthetic forms of expression to shape our understanding of transnational migration processes. The volume emphasises form because it is often the compositional structure and rhetoric of texts and images – their literary nature and formal qualities – that impact readers and beholders, opening up new interpretations of im/migrant experiences and identities.

Addressing im/migrant forms of expression around the globe, this rich, illustrated collection includes poetry, creative nonfiction, interviews, analyses of diasporic fashion, cinema, and mixed media installations, as well as performances turned into writing, photographic work, collages, and drawings. Forms of Migration shows us how to apprehend migration differently, through innovative storytelling, offering opportunities to confront the complexity of migration processes.
