Blue Stone Dreams

Master's Thesis


Through poetic language and a surrealistic imagery, this thesis will explore the concept of “Third Culture”, a term first coined by researchers John and Ruth Useem in the 1950s to describe a synthesis of two cultures (one from the country which the individual’s parents came from and the second one being the culture in which the family settled into) that produces a new individual culture. Extending itself cross-culturally, cross-linguistically, and multi-dimensionally, the three parts of this thesis present several worlds and an understanding of relationships that were born through the writer’s experience of living a “Third Culture” of her own.
