A 90 minute event to mark the book launch of Living in Sheffield: Our Journeys as Migrant Women with the author Livia Barreira
Immigration is rarely out of the news in the UK, but the voices and stories of the migrants themselves are notable by their absence. Studies with migrants have highlighted the importance of recognising and amplifying migrants' voices. In this context, Livia Barreira, in her new book 'Living in Sheffield: Our Journeys as Migrant Women' illustrates these discussions in a beautiful and poetic way, recognising the voices of different migrant women living in Sheffield. The discussion will be led by Patrica Nabuco Martuscelli, whose research has explored decolonial and feminist approaches to studying migrants and refugees in Latin America. Patricia will draw links between Livia's book and current research taking place within the University of Sheffield' s Department of Politics and International Relations. Refreshments will be served and copies of Livia's book will be available from local independent community bookshop, Juno Books.
