The research in this book illustrates that most discussions about cultural differences tend to focus on East to West migrations. The experience of xenotropism can initiate memoir writing and therefore presents a viable field for further research. The extent of transformation as a result of foreignness in terms of both artistic and personal development, has been little studied in the literature. It is through xenotropism that one can move from being “bound” up in their own culture, to becoming “unbound” into a new hybrid form, as a global citizen.

Keywords: Artistic development, Catalyst, China, Cross-disciplinary, Culture, East, Expatriates, Foreign, Global citizens, Global writing, Journaling, Memoir, Mental health, Migrations, Personal development, Photography, Questionnaires, Research methods, Transformation, West, Xenotropism.
