Book cover of Peter Leese's Migrant Representations
To celebrate the launch of our recent 'By The Cut of Their Cloth' exhibition, we're giving away a hardback copy of Peter Leese's new book 'Migrant Representations', worth £95, on our Twitter account. 

Many thanks to Liverpool University Press for providing this great prize!

What is the book about?

Migrant Represenations pairs twenty-four carefully selected histories in order to compare how migrants themselves – Irish labourer, Lithuanian refugee or Indian doctor – and their social investigators define their private and historical moments.

These comparative case studies from the 1780s to the 2000s explore how migrants constructed their own narratives of mobility and settlement through procedures of reflecting, remembering and recording. Moreover, these studies examine how speech, writing, and picture were used, for instance, by a missionary, social scientist or activist to make ‘outside’ representations of the migrant.
