Mobility and migration, hardly new phenomena in Southeast Asia, both raise intriguing questions about experiences of place, home, and belonging. The term 'homeland' can refer to the modern nation of citizenship, but often 'homelands' may be places of origin socially memorialized in people's lives in far-distant locations. 'Homeland' may even refer to a sense of belonging painfully re-worked with respect to these new locations. The essays in this volume consider various forms of 'home' and 'homeland' that are meaningful for some of the peoples of archipelagic Southeast Asia, with particular reference to Indonesia and East Timor.
