Refugee experiences in Austin

Austin, Texas, USA: A Case Study of Refugees in Towns

The Austin case study looks at Syrian refugees living in the deep American southwest, and how their wellbeing impacts their experiences with integration. The author, herself a Syrian migrant to the US, shares a depth of experience with shifting identity, belonging, and ability to live and thrive in Austin, documenting everything from learning cultural norms and mannerisms to driving and understanding street signs.
