Loss of Culture, Nation and Identity: A Post 9/11 study on the exploitative state of Immigrants in Home Elegies by Ayad Akhtar
The aim of this research is to scrutinize the status of immigrants in the post 9/11 era where diasporas’ people feels the jolts of exploitation and the pangs of displacement not only from their homes but from their Identity as well. Uprooted from their culture and wandering with the sense of “Unhomliness” they are in a constant search to “belong” somewhere. This crisis is depicted in Ayad Akhtar’s Homeland Elegies. His work echoes the trauma of cultural loss and identity issues in post 9/11 America and how they are alienated not only from the culture that they live in but also from the country where they are born particularly on the basis of their religion Islam.
