Catriona Taylor: SCDS Artist Reports Back on Residency

Today’s seminar was a great success. Catriona Taylor gave us a fascinating talk on the results of her time as the Scottish Centre of Diaspora Studies’ artist in residence. This included two short films entitled ‘Am I an Immigrant?’ and ‘Flow’ which both looked at personal, and wider, interpretations of diasporic terminology.The final piece that Catriona showed us was a quilt made up of images, stories and material which represented ‘home’ to migrants currently living in Scotland.

Our next seminar will be held on 14th October in G14 of the William Robertson Wing at 1pm. The speaker will be Michal Palacz speaking on The Polish medical diaspora in Scotland during and after the Second World War. Please feel free to join us.
