Abstract: The Arab American literature is mainly concerned about issues and concepts of the Arab World such as Identity dislocation, trauma and belonging. This dissertation, therefore, attempts to examine an interesting work of the same literary genre that is Suzan Abulhawa's Mornings in Jenin. This novel is explored in the light of its representation of diasporic identity and trauma. Thus, this study sheds light on the role of trauma and displacement in shaping the character's personal and national identity. The research is also interested in determining to what extent the Palestinian culture and identity were well depicted throughout the novel. In doing so, psychoanalysis and post-colonialism are the two main approaches that are applied in order to analyze the characters' psyche. Additionally, this study will bring into light the Palestinian-American literature and perceive identity from a new perspective. Therefore, trauma and diaspora are key concepts in the formation of the Palestinian identity and Mornings in Jenin is a pure representation of the Palestinian identity in the light of suffering and dispersal.
