Digital Stories - Migration and Precarious Work

Home by Kiran Mistry 

In "Home" Kiran explores the narratives of belonging of Sri Lankan women immigrants to Toronto.  She focuses on their work experiences and argues that for the women she interviewed, home was partly constructed thorugh positive employment experiences.  Unfortunately, upon coming to Canada, the women faced deskilling through a process that Mistry discusses as structural violence.
