Living a double life: home and university

In the chapter, Living a double life: home and university, Sandhisha Jay Narain writes with great sensitivity about how ‘race’ and gender intersect in forging her identities as a young Indian woman living at home with her parents and as a student at UKZN. While writing about her different identities, she sees them as complementary, with ‘traditional teachings’ (at home) helping to promote a commitment to the work ethic as a student (at university).
