“Memories of Lost Homes” uses the notion of affective geographies to examine survivors’ reconstruction of lost homes. It argues that memory produces the geographies of lost homes through cognitive mapping of neighbourhoods, streets and places of work, play and worship and affective images of sights, sounds and smells of villages, towns or cities. Secondly, the imaginings of homelands by migrant memories warn against the production of a unified Punjab as memories locate homes in a specific city, village, neighbourhood, region, language or community.
