Before Windrush: Mapping Migrants in an Age of Controversies

Tue, 18 June 2019 16:00 – 18:00

The image of migrants clustering into specific areas of town remains a powerful and significant symbol of the challenges of integration, but an analysis of the sources show that it lacks strong historical foundations in the UK. Migrants’ settlement behaviour is more nuanced and quite responsive to environmental factors.

Using a sample from Edinburgh in 1911, Marc Di Tommasi will discuss the underlying causes behind migrant housing practices. A comparative, quantitative and spatial approach will highlight the role played by socio-economic conditions.

This seminar talk will be followed by a drinks reception.
