Abstract [en]

The purpose of this presentation is to shed light on what happened then when one family was forced to leave home, when the daughter returned and when she oriented towards something new. With a life story approach I analyze an individual's narrative about leaving and change in a process that can be described in the three stages tell, analyze and read. Starting point for the analysis is individually told memories that are interpreted using postcolonial theory and theories of social capital. What has the breakup, return and reorientation meant, what is communicated and what can we, with the help of this life story, learn about life when you as a young person were forced to leave home, when you returned and then turned toward something new are questions I ask.
