本論文以薜曼．亞歷斯小說《一個兼職印第安少年的絕對真實日記》為材料，探討居住經驗與旅行經驗對於自我的形成的不同影響力及兩種經驗的互動關係。第一章討論主角阿諾‧神靈的身份認同，探討他如何經由居住經驗與記憶建立與不同於他的族人的「停滯地方感」，他建立的是一種「進展性地方感」。第二章討論主角的自我發展，探討阿諾‧神靈如何運用其旅行經驗拓展他的社會空間與流動性。第三章討論主角價值觀的建構，探討阿諾‧神靈如何以他的居住經驗及旅行經驗的交錯而建立混雜型的新自我。 The thesis aims to examine Sherman Alexie''s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian from the perspective of cultural geography. I discuss the interrelation among dwelling experience, traveling experience and the formation of self. In Chapter One, “Place and Roots/Routes of Identity: Dwelling Experience in Transborder Foray,” I explore the development of Arnold''s dwelling experience and its related sense of belonging. I analyze the protagonist’s sense of belonging to significant places, and contrast the tribal people''s static sense of place and Arnold Spirit''s progressive sense of place. In Chapter Two, “Space and Mobility: Traveling Experience in Transborder Foray,” I investigate the possibility of social growth by analyzing Arnold''s traveling experience and its related social space. Arnold shows his increasing expansion of social space in Reardan. In Chapter Three, “Landscape and Hybridity: The Formation of Self in Transborder Foray,” I discuss the development of value system by elaborating how the formation of self is related to the representation of landscape and to two spatial conception of identity—node and container.
