Envisioning Migration: New article on Super-diverse Streets research

16 June 2016

A new article, “Envisioning Migration: Drawing the Infrastructure of Stapleton Road, Bristol” by Suzanne Hall, Julia King, and Robin Finlay has been published in the “New Diversities” journal. Emerging from the “Super-diverse Streets” research project, it explores the different ways drawing can be practiced to understand how migration shapes the infrastructure of the so-called ‘British’ high street. Focusing on Stapleton Road, Bristol, the article contributes to discussions on the role of drawing as a critical visual practice in social research, while elaborating on a conception of “migrant infrastructure” to bring practices of economic life into view, relating the processes of migration and marginalisation to the spaces of world, street, shop and body.
