Join us for an afternoon of discussion to mark the launch of the new project Migrant memory and the post-colonial imagination: British Asian memory, identity and community after Partition, led by Professor Emily Keightley and funded by the Leverhulme Trust. This event is organised in collaboration with Radar, Loughborough University’s Contemporary Art programme commissioning artists to respond to academic research. A panel of invited artists and academics will reflect on their own research and creative practice in response to the project’s main themes: Partition, diaspora and memory. The session will be followed by a drinks reception.
