The author of this testimony explores a panoply of issues related to her immigration experience in Canada. She describes how her Canadian PhD scholarship turned into an immigration project to settle down and work in Canada. She addresses the idea of in-betweenness and her decision to write a novel in French. She describes the immigration experience as a space of discovery and constant movement between cities, as well as a space of linguistic estrangement. She examines geographic and intellectual borders that impose themselves on the immigrant and affect the exilic experience.]
