The piece Cross Cultural addresses the interactions and relationships between source and host cultures. It is specifically about my experience as an Iranian person living in Australia. I left Iran in my late twenties and so spent my childhood and early adult life immersed in Iranian culture; thus, I have had to come to terms with a totally different culture as a mature adult. Historically (and certainly this is the view taken by the theoretical frameworks of migration), two cultures brought together gradually dissolve into each other, and a new hybrid culture is born. This new culture is a combination of both cultures, and develops its own characteristics. The difficult changes brought about through displacement are often harmful, time-consuming, confusing and difficult.
