abstract

Current technology places migrant narratives into a fresh, diverse and at times hybrid act of narrating. Due to the proliferation of digital media and global culture, migrants’ journeys are frequently documented through various multimodal forms. The impact of new media on the body of current migrant narratives – particularly those that fall under the canon of postcolonial literature – will be explored in the works of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Reni Eddo-Lodge and Warsan Shire. This chapter also aims at highlighting how current technology is increasingly used as a means for people to tell their stories, so that their voices can be heard by a wider citizenship and most relevantly therefore might be used as advocacy tools for a cause.
