Migrants in Post-Socialist Britain

Thursday 11 May 2023 (14:00-15:30)

Join us for the first in our webinar series 'Post-Socialism, Migration and Memory in Britain and Beyond'.

What happens to memories of state-socialism and of post-communist transition when its carriers move across borders? How do individuals and communities grapple with the legacies of regimes in host societies with different kinds of legacies? As a culmination point of the research project "Post-Socialist Britain?: Memory, Representation and Political Identity amonst German, Polish and Ukrainian Immigrants in the UK", funded by the UK Arts & Humanities Research Council and led by Professor Sara Jones (University of Birmingham), we are organising a series of virtual webinars in May and June 2023.
