Centro de Comunicação e Letras (CCL)The aim of this study, based on the book Americanah, which was written by the Nigerian and activist author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, is to analyze the identity of an individual who heads from one country to another on account of many reasons. Taking this into consideration, the general objective is to demonstrate that once one had his/her own identity changed, how it would be possible to keep some characteristics of the original one. To do so, the strategies that Ifemelu (Americanah’s protagonist) used will be shown throughout the analysis. The specific objectives are: (a) to investigate what strategies the protagonist used to deconstruct and reconstruct her own identity with trates of the original one; (b) analyze that she discovered herself as a black woman in the USA; (c) demonstrate that after living such a long period in two different places, Ifemelu had her identity transformed and shared, and also discovered how it was to feel displaced not only in America, but also in her own country; (d) also investigate that the feeling of belonging to both countries or neither of them, it is common to people who live in two or more countries and, lastly, (e) it will be analyzed that due to the fact of not knowing where she belonged to also made her having issues to recognize her true home.
