Narratives of migration and artefacts of identity: new imaginings and new generations

Date: 17 October 2006 Time: 1.00 pm

Literacy Research Discussion Group Seminar Series, Meeting Room 2, Institute for Advanced Studies

Title: Narratives of migration and artefacts of identity: new imaginings and new generations.Speaker: Kate Pahl, University of Sheffield.This presentation will describe an AHRC-funded research project, conducted with Andy Pollard, Sheffield Hallam, working with the Pakistani/Kashmiri community in Rotherham with a school and a Sure Start centre, to develop an exhibition of artefacts and narratives of migration, together with visual artist, Zahir Rafiq, and the Clifton Park museum in Rotherham. The project aimed to develop an exhibition, due to be put on in February 2007, and a website (www.ferhamfamilies.com) as a result of the research. In this talk I will explore the following questions: What identity narratives are salient to second, third or fourth generation families settled in Rotherham of Pakistani/Kashmiri origin? What is the relationship between narratives and artefacts in the home, and how much are artefacts ways of upholding identity narratives? How do space and place figure within these narratives? Through description of the construction of the website and the museum exhibition, and the navigation of the project through the community partners, I will explore the relationship between space, place and identity narratives.
