Abstract

This thesis explores the meaning and significance of migration and return migration between the Maltese island of Gozo and the Australian city of Melbourne. The exploration begins in the Introduction with 'Lina', a Gozitan return migrant from Melboume whose situation captures the dilemma of cultural 'hybridity'. Through Lina, the reader is introduced in turn to the concept of crossings into worlds beyond the familiar, a metaphor which is employed throughout the thesis.
