My research project examines issues of belonging in the Swedish diaspora in the north of England bringing a minority discourse into the public realm. I am developing a notion called diasporic touch exploring how a combination of seeing, touching and creative writing opens up an imaginary space where ‘there and then’ is ‘here and now’, and where the process of making art generates a sense of belonging.
The research seeks to identify the ways in which the magazine’s editorial and art direction practices portrayed a space in which the refugees constructed their identity, their relationship to their homeland (Greece), their lives under “Real existing Socialism’ (mainly in the German Democratic Republic) and produced national(ist) imaginings.
