Newham Heritage Month is taking place throughout May, under the theme of Shops, Docks and Factories with events and online activities taking place across the borough.

Newham’s diverse borough, with a rich migration history, has led us to celebrate the festival by sharing stories from well-loved shop owners as part of our programme of activities beyond the four walls of the museum. We're launching this mini-research project and trail partnering with three of Newham’s best-loved shops and restaurants; Newham Bookshop, Kate's Cafe and Miah’s Oriental Foods.

Pick up your free guide from Newham Bookshop’s front desk throughout May 2021, 10am – 5pm, Tuesday – Sunday

As the pandemic and its response has highlighted, the NHS faces huge challenges. Will the NHS remain an attractive place to work for migrants? What does the future hold for NHS workers? What will happen to areas and roles that are heavily reliant on European migrant workers post-Brexit?

We want to hear from NHS workers with migrant backgrounds. Share your story at www.heartofthenation.co.uk/share-your-story

"We settled in well. It was a multicultural environment at the home with nurses from Spain, Mauritius, Ireland, Jamaica, and Germany and we soon fitted in. We got involved with the social life in and around the hospital and local villages. We Filipinas also created a group to perform native dances and to share some of our culture and food with local people.

We were invited to perform some of our traditional dances at local garden fetés and events around local villages. We were fortunate to have a hospital chaplain who took us under his wing. He and his family treated as though we were an part of them. They took us everywhere locally to show us the beauty of Dorset. When we felt homesick we had somewhere to go.

I finished my training successfully and actually enjoyed my mental health nursing. During that time the Hospital organised an annual Ball for their staff. There I met the man who was to become my husband. We married 2 years later and settled in Dorchester. To this day I feel blessed to live here. It has become the home I love." - Zeny Santos arrived from the Philippines

“I kept finding references to women in footnotes of books, but nobody was focusing on them. It was as if they were written off as victims. And there had to be far more to it than that.” - Dr Lesley Trotter.

The latest episode of our #DeparturesMM podcast explores how, as the Cornish mining industry went into decline, the 19th century “left behind” wives survived when thousands of men left each year to find better-paid jobs abroad – and why their stories are so important to understand the full story of migration. Featuring @humblehistoryuk, author of The Married Widows of Cornwall; Amanda Drake, who shares a poignant letter sent by her 19th century ancestor; and a traditional Cornish song arranged and performed by Dalla. Presented and produced by Mukti Jain Campion.

Departures podcast episode 7 – The Left Behind Wives of Cornwall

Emigration histories tend to focus on the people who move abroad. But what about the people – often women and children – left at home?

In 19th century Cornwall this was a pressing question. As the local mining industry went into decline, thousands of men left each year to find better-paid jobs abroad, leaving wives and families to cope alone and rely on remittances that didn’t always come.

The latest episode of our Departures podcast explores how the “left behind” wives survived – and why their stories are so important to understand the full story of migration. Featuring Humble History by Lesley Trotter, author of The Married Widows of Cornwall; Amanda Drake, who shares a poignant letter sent by her 19th century ancestor; and a traditional Cornish song arranged and performed by DALLA.

#HeartoftheNation IG Live 2: Pregnant on the Front Line

#HeartoftheNation IG Live 2: Pregnant on the Front Line – with award-winning blogger and podcaster Jess Jones and Dr Meenal Viz a doctor in Oncology and A&E, PPE activist and Vogue cover girl.

Jess and Meenal discuss their experiences of being pregnant not only during a global pandemic but also during the UK’s first lockdown. In this clip, Meenal tells Jess how she balances being a doctor, a mother and an activist, whilst maintaining her South Asian heritage - and reveals her “superpower”.

“I know in 5 years’ time, in 10 years’ time, Radhika or your kids for example, will look back and think well this was a critical point in our history, in our generation. What was done to make change happen?”

This was the second in our new series of IG Lives, conversations where we get to dig a little deeper into the stories in our #HeartoftheNation exhibition. A big thank you to Dr Meenal Viz and Jess Jones who gave up their time to talk to us.

Catch our next IG Live on Tuesday 6 April at 8pm with Dr Radhika Thakrar and Dr Muhayman Jamil, who will be discussing life on the front line in 1980s Iraq as a trauma surgeon to working on the front line in the NHS during the pandemic.

Our Story

The Migration Museum Project is shining a light on the many ways that the movement of people to and from Britain across the ages has shaped who we are – as individuals, as communities, and as a nation. We are doing this through the creation of an inspiring national Migration Museum, a far-reaching nationwide education programme, and a knowledge-sharing network of museums and galleries across the UK.

We have staged an acclaimed series of events, exhibitions and education workshops at venues across the UK since 2013, exploring the central role that migration has played in making us who we are today – as individuals, as communities and as a nation – and helping us to hone our strategy and receive input and feedback from individuals and communities as we work towards our goals. Our exhibitions and events have been attended by over 170,000 visitors, while more than 7,500 school and university students have participated in our education workshops.

We are moving to an exciting new venue in Lewisham in 2020. Opening in February 2020, the Migration Museum in Lewisham will stage a varied programme of exhibitions, events and education workshops from the heart of Lewisham Shopping Centre – more details to follow.

Between April 2017 and November 2019, we were based at the Migration Museum at The Workshop in London, a temporary venue, now closed to the public, in which we staged a dynamic series of exhibitions, events and education workshops. Being based at a central London venue for two and a half years enabled us to provide a showcase for the permanent Migration Museum for Britain that we are creating, raise our profile, expand audience reach, deepen links with community groups and schools, and test ideas for our permanent museum.

This post of mine has had about a thousand views and many comments on various pages... The Great Smog of London - 68 years ago this week - in December 1952 was the main reason my father decided to emigrate from England, where he had been stationed with the RAF since 1947 (after volunteering for service in his native Malta in 1940). I was a baby in 1952 and developed a bronchial condition as a result of the smog. My dad told me he couldn't bear to see me in my cot, coughing badly. Babies and the elderly were the main victims of the smog. He told my mother, a Londoner, that he was going to Melbourne, where his brother Joe worked on the wharves, and would take me, aged three, with him. My mum had little choice but never regretted the decision. In oral history interviews I recorded, both my parents talk about the nature and extent of the Great Smog that killed so many Londoners that funeral businesses ran out of coffins. It was nicknamed the 'pea-souper' and was very toxic. I am grateful for my parents' decision to emigrate. Sadly, though, my dad never really felt at home in Australia. One of life's many ironies - my mother who didn't want to leave England fell in love with Australia overnight, yet my dad, who was so keen to migrate, never really adjusted. Anyway, the smog problem was largely solved by legislative measures - the Clean Air Act of 1956 which began the introduction of smokeless fuels for home heating.
The documentary THE PATAGONIAN BONES, about the 1865 migration of Welsh settlers to Patagonia, and the work to identify the remains of the first Welsh woman who died there, is available for free on You Tube:
Wonderful museum. Very creative exhibition which had adults and children in our party very absorbed. And the hanging kindness boxes were beautiful!
The space is great, the exhibition moving and the people there wonderful - if your in London: go see it!
How many refugees do you know?

The Conference Organising Committee 3rd INTERNATIONAL KURDISH STUDIES CONFERENCE Shifting Dynamics of the Kurdistan Question in a Changing Middle East Over 35 million Kurds live under the national jurisdictions of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria where the Kurdish identity, culture, linguistic rights, homeland and own political representation are contested and contained in most cases by the force of arms. Consequently, the combination of authoritarian state ideologies, the systematic and recurrent use of state violence in these countries has led to the rise of Kurdish opposition. In turn, the ruling states have further used the Kurdish resistance as a pretext to reinforce draconian policies of negation, assimilation and elimination of Kurdish national aspirations. The 20th century has marked the most repressive state policies against the Kurdish quest for self-determination. At the turn of the 21st century, however, various political developments suggest a shift for the Kurds. The regime change in Iraq in 2003, the ongoing civil war in Syria and the emergence of ISIS were among the watershed events that have not only changed the balance of power in the Middle East but also the perception and position of the Kurds in the global political system. The establishment of the Kurdistan Regional Government in Kurdistan-Iraq, the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria and the rise of pro-Kurdish political parties in Kurdistan-Turkey have given rise to the political visibility of the Kurds in international politics. The old borders and boundaries that separated the Kurds are becoming increasingly ineffective. These crucial developments have deepened the sovereignty crisis of the oppressive regional states. Simultaneously with this emerging new political geography and visibility of the Kurds, the number of scholarly studies on the “Kurdish Question” and “Kurdistan Question” has rapidly increased in recent years. The “Kurdistan Question” is growing into an international political issue that needs a global response to find a peaceful settlement in the region. Keynote Speaker Prof Abbas Vali, Emeritus Professor of Sociology Call for Abstracts This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together researchers from a range of disciplines working on Kurdish history, politics, culture, gender, minority rights and diaspora to examine the ongoing political, social and cultural developments in the lives of the Kurds and Kurdistan. In this context, we seek a broad range of contributions from disciplines of sociology, politics, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, gender studies, cultural studies, history, economics, law, international relations and migration studies. Researchers are kindly encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts. We also welcome proposals for sessions and are open to suggestions as to what format these take, including panel discussions, roundtables and workshops or book launches. The conference will provide an excellent venue for academics, researchers, students, professionals and policymakers. How to submit Please submit your abstract of maximum 350 words to [email protected].

Hi! Does the museum have a phone number? Thank you!
SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITY Hi there, A friend and I have recently launched an online and print publication called shado which promotes the engagement between arts, activism and academia, and their joint role in spotlighting misrepresented and marginalised global issues. shado is an exciting new grassroots collective which functions to both reflect and support the voices and work of those at the frontline of movements for political and social change. Each issue of the publication will explore a different topic and, within this, showcase the unique responses by an expansive network of artists, activists and academics around the world. These topics cover a wide range of current political and social issues, including universal womanhood in 2019, the conflict in Yemen, gender-based violence in conflict and climate change. As much as possible we are wanting to support and promote the work of emerging academics alongside our artists, musicians and activists to make the link between research and on the ground creatives and organisations. To achieve this, we are looking to include a range of different perspectives and research pieces and would have submissions open to anyone wishing to publish a piece of their writing. Our first issue is centred on the European refugee experience and we would like to welcome any research pieces along this theme. This can be broad theoretical discussions regarding representation, migration, securitisation, identity etc. or can be more specific case study pieces. If this of interest to anyone of you would like to find out more about ways to get involved in any area of the project (not limited to academia) then please get in touch at: [email protected] We also have an Instagram page @shado.mag – give us a follow to find out more about what we’re up to!
