Webinar

The Experience of Italian Migrants in the
North East of England, during World War II

Presented by:
Dr Simona Palladino.
Saturday, April 17 at 5.00 pm (BST) ****

Dr. Palladino is a Lecturer in Social Sciences at Liverpool Hope University. Her Doctoral Degree, at Newcastle University, encompassed ethnographic research about older migrants' sense of home, with a thesis entitled: "Place attachment and place identity amongst older Italians in Newcastle upon Tyne".

Her award winning documentary, "Age is Just a Bingo Number" illustrated the experiences of ageing in the context of migration and promoted social aspects of the environment for health and well-being in later life. For more information visit: https://www.hope.ac.uk/si/dr-simona-palladino.html

Our Webinars are currently only open to Society members so please remember to reserve your place by contacting our Membership Secretary.

*** Due to the funeral service for HRH Prince Philip earlier in the afternoon, the Society has decided, out of respect, to delay the start of the Webinar for an hour and it will now start at 5.00pm.

A recording of the Webinar may be made available shortly after the event for members who are unable to participate.
