The thesis examines how identity formation is presented in the three immigrant memoirs, The Latehomecomer, Funny in Farsi, and The Woman Warrior. My aim is to illuminate the diversity of immigrant experiences by analyzing how these experiences and processes of identity formation are presented through the genre of autobiography. The three main chapters are structured around different aspects of identity formation as presented in the memoirs. The first chapter revolves around how identity is presented and negotiated through memory, language, and agency in The Latehomecomer. The second chapter focuses on relationality and models of identity as presented in Funny in Farsi, while the third chapter investigates how identity is negotiated through gender, filiality, and authenticity in The Woman Warrior. The three memoirs are compared and contrasted throughout the thesis, and are further discussed in relation to the genre of autobiography.
