What draws us back to our origins? How do we explain this compelling desire to understand where we came from and return to a culture, with its attendant values and perspectives that may be both alien yet fundamental to us? In this talk based off his new book Return: Why We Go Back to Where We Come From, Kamal Al-Solaylee shares his attempts to understand the emotions behind the wish to return to a sense of home.
