Digging Sustainability Science - interview
06 February 2024

dr. Jeannette den Toonder, shares insights on the experiences of migrants, in an interview about her key paper 'Narrating pain: The power of storytelling in Maryam Madjidi’s Marx et la poupée.'

Our world is becoming more and more globalised with each passing year and many people away to different places all over the world. However, attention is rarely given to the plight of migrants who are adapting to a new culture. How do they cope with the pressure of 'fitting in' in their new home? How do they express and deal with negative emotions?'

dr. Jeanette Den Toonder is professor in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Groningen, and Director Centre for Canadian Studies.

The interview is made by Master Student Petar Tsonev.
