Overlooked Overlookers (Meena Dhanda)


Overlooked Overlookers (Meena Dhanda)

Join experts on South Asian diaspora studies from the University of Wolverhampton team with Community Education Academy of Leadership (CEAL), pioneers in cataloguing stories of overlooked women textile workers, to facilitate a sharing of memories of these early migrants’ experience. Race, gender, class and religion have figured in the stories collected thus far by CEAL but what about caste? In the first half of this workshop, we will rekindle memories by collectively viewing archival images of overlocking machines in the
company of workmates, friends and families. Research findings on
caste in Britain will be briefly shared and further triggers to
memory will be provided through the touch of old fabrics, labels and
buttons. Hidden stories of bonds and breakups, laughter and tears,
troubles and struggles, involving co-workers, employers, families
and friends will be voiced. In the second half, the women’s stories
will be used to create a patchwork for display using fabrics, threads
and needles.
