Abstract or Description

How does it feel to be perceived as the violent, terrorist, un-British 'other', to be a minority in a majority situation, to have no sense of belonging, to be voiceless, marginalised and invisible?

Dr Hoque will examine these complex issues through the lives and multifaceted identities of six British-born third-generation Bangladeshis from East London. Do they see themselves as Bangladeshi, British, Muslim, Londoners, none of these or a fusion of them all? Their stories are powerful, clear and unsettling, charting their journeys from invisibility to visibility and from the periphery to the core of British social life. With a sense of displacement, alienation and non-belonging, we gain a better understanding and insight into the sociocultural worlds that many of our young people are
living in.
