The existing literature and numerous webpages dealing with Third Culture Kids often appear to be overenthusiastic about the concept. TCKs have spent their childhood on the move, living in many different countries and languages. Researchers, practitioners, and TCKs themselves have created an essentialized image of TCKs, even though, in essence, these individuals are just migrants in special circumstances. This book proposes to think otherwise and to review the ideologies and myths behind this construct. With contributors from different parts of the world and from various disciplines, the origins of the term TCKs, its development and the current debates around it are discussed, beyond the somewhat stagnant discourses about these individuals. The key concepts associated with Third Culture Kids are also revisited. This volume represents a timely, authoritative and alternative way of rethinking and reimagining the impact of mobility.
