Hannah Lowe and Melanie Abrahams discuss and share work on migration, diaspora and seeking your own independence.  

Hannah Lowe will read from her family memoir Long Time, No See which reconstructs the life of her Jamaican-Chinese father, who arrived in Liverpool from Jamaica in 1947. She will discuss the use of public and personal archives such as her father's lost-and-found notebook, shipping logs, photographic collections and oral histories.

Melanie Abrahams will explore the theme of independence from the perspective of Caribbean descendants in England, and the potential impact and effects it has had on mind and body.  She will explore a personal journey towards self-autonomy through literature, archives and creativity.
