Identity Building in the Local Environment

In this chapter I will analyze individual identity-building strategies with the help of which the newcomers to Gradina attempt to bridge the chasm between their earlier and current life, with each having its own value code (cf. Camilleri 1998: 253-254). The chasm has emerged as a result of the drastic change in their life and in their social circumstances which they experienced because of the forced migration. Striving to make sense of their earlier and new experiences, the settlers find ways to relate their experiences to each other so as to redefine their understanding of themselves both as persons and as members of the local community. In the context of migration, identity-building strategies serve the purpose of reevaluating and redefining personal identity in a new social and cultural setting, and thus establishing social identity in the new environment.
