Metaphors of migration and survival: Negotiating crisis times through seeking alternative spaces.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is about the fictional representation of the tenacity, innovativeness and agency displayed by people who seek to better their living conditions and survive socio-economic and political cesspools. The aim is to demonstrate how political boundaries are surmounted and the various means used to migrate as a way to be in the diaspora and better one’s condition. A worst case scenario of Zimbabwe under a crisis is used to demonstrate the resilience and resourcefulness of ordinary people as they struggle to migrate and embrace global citizenry.
