In Exiled Home, Susan Bibler Coutin recounts the experiences of Salvadoran children who migrated with their families to the United States during the 1980–1992 civil war. Because of their youth and the violence they left behind, as well as their uncertain legal status in the United States, many grew up with distant memories of El Salvador and a profound sense of disjuncture in their adopted homeland. Through interviews in both countries, Coutin examines how they sought to understand and overcome the trauma of war and displacement through such strategies as recording community histories, advocating for undocumented immigrants, forging new relationships with the Salvadoran state, and, for those deported from the United States, reconstructing their lives in El Salvador. In focusing on the case of Salvadoran youth, Coutin’s nuanced analysis shows how the violence associated with migration can be countered through practices that recuperate historical memory while also reclaiming national membership.

About the Author:

Susan Bibler Coutin is Professor of Criminology, Law and Society and Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine. She is the author of Nations of Emigrants: Shifting Boundaries of Citizenship in El Salvador and the United StatesLegalizing Moves: Salvadoran Immigrants’ Struggle for U.S. Residency; and The Culture of Protest: Religious Activism and the U.S. Sanctuary Movement.

Review:

"Exiled Home constitutes a timely and sophisticated scholarly piece that entails a thorough methodological discussion and makes for fascinating reading. By placing deportation within an institutional and policy context and considering the experiences of undocumented immigrants raised in or deported from the host country, the book complements an existing literature that is largely concerned with the reasons for migration, the situation of adult immigrants, and the impact of remittances. The work makes an impassioned plea to legalize youths who are US citizens in all but immigration status and should prove of interest in both academic and policy circles." (Sonja Wolf International Migration Review 2017-03-20)

"At a time when more people than ever are being displaced from their homelands, Coutin’s vivid, youth-centered analysis offers a potent and instructive understanding both of those who migrate and of those who are exiled home." (Ruth Gomberg-Muñoz American Anthropologist 2017-09-01)

"An illuminating example of how to effectively and creatively mesh theory with qualitative data. . . . A carefully crafted, humane portrayal of the broad-ranging and common experiences of Salvadoran migrant children living in the United States and those violently reinserted in El Salvador." (Shirley A. Heying Journal of Anthropological Research 2017-11-01)

"Exiled Home is a testament to many things—the importance of ?eldwork, the signi?cance of critical thought, the power of political participation—but the book also evidences the gift of longstanding ethnographic engagements." (Kevin Lewis O'Neill Anthropological Quarterly 2017-10-01)
