The Homemaker: Social Roles and Identity in Jhumpa Lahiri’s Mrs. Sen’s

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Identity is a continuous construction of how one construes oneself in the present, past, and future. Gender, familial, and socioeconomic roles interact to form one’s identity. Collectivist cultures, which stress strong in-group identification, encourage allocentrism. When allocentric individuals immigrate to a more individualistic culture, they are more vulnerable to feelings of alienation and stress. Lahiri’s Mrs. Sen, who moved to New England for her husband’s career, misses her family in India. Without this group identification to define her, she struggles to translate customs, particularly gendered domestic practices, into American culture in an effort to find security in a stable role.
