Emigration within the British Empire research help : )Watch
I'm in need of some research help with my MA dissertation.I want to look at the emigrant experience within the British Empire. My general research is around the people who left England to go to other nations within the empire- USA*, Australia, South Africa- and became disillusioned with what they found and thus returned to the UK. I want to look at this idea of British identity and how it manifested outside of Britain. I am trying to find representations of this within books, films, tv, media from the 19th/20th Centuries to see how this was perceived or what these peoples experiences were like in general..I can think of the film Brooklyn, but other than that, I'm coming up short... anyone got some suggestions??Thank you!!*I realise the USA was not technically within the empire, but there are cultural connections remaining there.
