This paper explores the benefits of placing literature more centrally in investigations of migration. It begins with a discussion of categorisation and content of the literature and considers what this literature can tell us about migration, focussing on four key aspects: combating dominant narratives; challenging nationalist ideologies; providing historical perspectives; and therapeutic practice. Finally the paper describes three areas of migration literature that have been less widely theorised, but which are considered of particular interest to social scientists interested in literary approaches.
