Foreign Lands: American Fathers Living Abroad

Living abroad changes you. From my experience of living abroad since 2013 in four different countries, the transformation that takes place reshapes your thinking and challenges your own cultural background. This exposure piqued my curiosity of how others dealt with this transformation, particularly those who were already learning and adapting to new experiences—namely parents, but particularly fathers. How does a man change when he becomes a father? How does a father change when he moves abroad? “Foreign Lands: American Fathers Living Abroad” explores what fatherhood is, the identity of these men, and how they interact with their children while navigating the foreign world of parenting within another country.
