Creating Images of Belonging through Diasporic Touch

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.

Image and text in the construction of Greek national imaginaries. Pyrsos magazine in the GDR, 1961–1968

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.
