Understanding Migration Humanities

Migration of the middle class or the professional classes has been a theme undergirding major literary works such as Suketu Mehta’s new work, Mohsin Hamid and Amitav Ghosh’s Gun Island.

More than Digital Humanities, Migration Humanities as a genre should be formalised as Diaspora literature is a window into the multi local experience.

Now where are the low income/low skill migrant voices ? Is the task of representation laced with socioeconomic privilege?

Hence MD Sharif and Mukul’s work with the deep organising and community engagement of Mohsin Malhar Da stands out as a breach in the ivory tower.
