Deconstructing Identity Struggles of Cross-Cultural People in When We Were Orphans

Wang Fangyuan, Sun Yu, and Zhang Tong
Abstract—When We Were Orphans tells the stories of several cross-cultural people. They have to live in a different country and cultural background because of the Second World War. Being unaccepted by both cultural circles, they constantly lose their original identities. Based on deconstruction theory, this paper reveals confusion of cross-cultural people and evil of war from their deconstructing identity struggles.

Index Terms—Cross-culture, deconstruction, identity struggle, When We Were Orphans.
