Research Back ground
This project is deeply connected to a subject, which I have been struggling with for last 12 years in Europe. Globalisation is a process of interaction and integration among the people. The world is becoming smaller and closer, the boundaries between countries are getting thinner, It is even hard to say what is international and national anymore. My main research focus is "where is home?" and “What is the feeling of home? ”. I would like to search on people who lived and grew up in different culture and moved to another society, how they could or could not integrated. The first part of this research has been already started in Germany where the first Korean immigrants generations who came abroad as mine workers and nurses in order to support their starving families back home. I have interviewed these people who came to Germany more that 50 years ago. Why they didn’t go back and how do they feel to be in another country such a long time? Where do they feel home?
