How can the stories of families illuminate the histories of migrations? In this episode of the History Workshop Podcast, the second of two linked episodes devoted to family history, Julia Laite brings together emerging conversations on what might be termed “moving stories”: stories of families’ experiences of place and displacement, roots and rootlessness, stories about families and movement that are themselves often moving. Joining her are Ruth Beecher, Chandan Mahal, Yasmin Khan, Nadine Attewell, Natalie Pithers, and Alison Light.
The Family History Workshops from which this podcast was drawn were organised by Julia Laite in partnership with the Raphael Samuel History Centre and Historians Collaborate. These workshops were generously funded by the British Academy.
