The Migrant Soul: Living and Coping with International Lifestyles

With the growing trend towards international living, more and more of us are leaving behind the familiar world of family and friends to reinvent ourselves abroad. How do these decisions change our outlook, our sense of self, community, family and home?  Do people “back home” ever really understand who we are once we leave?

This series of six lectures uses extracts from literature to spark discussion on these and other issues, such as creating a home away from home, raising children abroad, or even choosing a place to retire. Feeling invigorated or lost between two cultures? Then join us. We have a lot to tell each other.

Instructor: Gretel Furner, MA German and French literature, Oxford, PhD German Literature, U. of Saarbruecken; formerly a professor at George Washington University, Washington, D.C.
