Locating Home is a comparative study of Hyderabadi emigrants—in Pakistan, the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States, Canada, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates—from the late 1960s to the end of the twentieth century. Based on ten years of fieldwork, it traces Hyderabadi culture and institutions in these settlements, looking at the different versions of Hyderabadi history transmitted, and the personal networks and collective bodies formed abroad. The book also talks about the changes in Hyderabad itself during this period. This multisite ethnography explores movements and memory, particularly the constitution and use of memories to claim old and new homelands. It shows how memories of old Hyderabad are retained, redefined, or discarded depending on generation, gender, class, connections to the Nizam’s former state of Hyderabad, and the national narratives of the new sites of settlement. The book emphasizes the role of the state in identity formation, the importance of language and religion for retention and reformulation of identities, and the instability of diasporic communities both within and across national boundaries. It highlights the definitions of diaspora, transnationalism, globalization, and cosmopolitanism, and showcases the experiences of what Hyderabadis abroad feel about these processes.
