Abstract:

This article analyses the memoirs of a United States citizen travelling in Mexico in the late 1970s and explores how she relocates her self with respect to a multiple other, in order to gain autonomy and accept her estrangement from her home. Using a framework of Kristevan theory, and Strangers to Ourselves in particular, I analyse how Morris's travel memoir embarks on multiple crossings of self and others in her attempts at finding her own inner foreigner.
