This article discusses experiences harvested when communicating migration research from an academic position as media researcher, partly influenced by other positions. It discusses transnational literacy illustrated by the case of Afghanistan and Afghan refugee experiences, arguing for a more holistic con-textual approach to the phenomenon of flight and all its processes. A critical human rights perspective in media research proves useful guidance to approach-ing marginalisation and the ‘silenced other’. This also entails a critical approach to methodological nationalism and media domestication, and ‘unlearning privilege as loss’. Furthermore, it discusses how researchers within certain fields (such as migration) may be associated with (or accused of) political correctness.
