Family Histories of Migration

The SOAS History Blog invites you to our hybrid panel event Family Histories of Migration – with Azeem Rajulawalla, Tara Bhat, Saffa Khalil, and Andreas Bowen, this coming Thursday 24 Feb, 5-6.30pm GMT. This is the fourth event in the SOAS History Blog schedule this year, and we’re excited to present this discussion and questions event focused on family histories of migration and why it’s important to amplify the knowledge found within it. Our panelists, all recent History graduates, will briefly introduce their areas of research, then open the floor to discussion more broadly with attendees.
Azeem Rajulawalla: The Expulsion of Asians from Uganda in 1972: a documentary
Tara Bhat: The migration of working class Indian women to Kenya in the 1950s and the historical erasure of their contribution
Saffa Khalil: Can we hear the past: Sudanese history through music
Andreas Bowen: The secret migration: the political migration of Cypriot Communists to Britain
