The International Writers’ Blog at Brown University works to provide a space for Brown’s international and ELL community to voice their opinions. The works include stories of personal experiences with migration, essays about evolving interpretations of the students’ own cultures, and interviews with international graduating seniors.
Here are some pieces from the blog:
- Addressed: Torn between two countries, one student describes his struggle to define his “permanent” address when there are forces pulling him towards both the U.S. and Taiwan.
- Another Minority: How you identify yourself does not just come from where you were born or who you grew up with. One student explains how their identity as a Third Culture Kid makes them "culturally unique" and adaptable.
- Too Proud of Not Enough?: A class titled “Intro to Ethnomusicology” pushed a student to question the phrase “world music” as well as how China’s culture has developed throughout history.
- Answer Me.: Poetry by Lily Zhao.
