St. Theresa Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences 
Vol. 7 No. 1 (2021): 

The study is an attempt to analyze the diasporic experience of the character of Catherine from the monumental work by Emile Brontë, Wuthering Heights. The main argument is that it is not only the outward migration from the homeland o a foreign land that produces diasporas but even in the land migration from one role to anothe can turn a person into an individual diaspora bringing in psychological transformation. The main finding of the study is that Catherine’s diasporic experience, her shift of place and role produces a gap in her, leaving her nostalgic, lamenting the lost home and friend. Eventually, the encounter between the past and present role and its demands in the constructed notion of identity reduces her ability to sustain her new position and descends her into the world of psychic imbalance making her more in love with death than life. It has been concluded that the boundaries within are as vital and significant as geographical boundaries.
