Way Back Home: Reflection on the Relationship between Migrants and Home in Globalization Era

WANG Cang-bai, HUANG Shao-lun(Center of Asian Studies,University of Hong Kong)  
In a more and more globalized and mobilized world, romantic and complete “home” in the traditional sense has been replaced by a more vibrant and split “home”. As for Chinese migrants, “ancestor's home”, “emotional home” and “functional home” have become the three basic dimensionalities of “home”. From the very moment of migrating, “home” and its meaning have been splitting in these three dimensions. As more and more people migrated, splitting was further deepened, which thus caused serious anxiety and unsecured feeling of the migrants. In order to overcome this anxiety, the migrants, by creatively borrowing the organizing principles and traditional culture of traditional society, tried hard to close the internal crack within “home”, which finally reconstructed a complete “home” in a symbolic sense and finished transcending the tradition. Therefore, in this era of globalization, “home” is a transmigrating process. It starts from “complete home”, through “split home”, and ends with “symbolic home”, or, to be more accurate, “complete home in symbolic sense”, which means finding the end from the starting point of the journey.
