Abstract

This short memoir explores how growing up between cultures can produce a dual perspective on one’s individual history, concepts of home and belonging. The author meditates on how her English parents’ distancing of their past from ‘the other place’ made their children curious about the ‘home’ country and their relationship to it through the development of narratives. The essay also touches upon the perception of British immigrants to Canada as white settlers in the mid-twentieth century.
