Eastern Europeans in Bristol invited to share memories of life under socialism

8 March 2012

Researchers at the University of Bristol are looking for people originally from Eastern European countries who currently live in and around Bristol to participate in a research project in which they will be asked to share their memories of living under socialism.

The East Meets West project aims to bring together eyewitnesses to different forms of state socialism and generate broader understanding of this aspect of European history amongst the local community.

The research, which is being conducted by Dr Debbie Pinfold and Claire Hyland from the University‚Äôs School of Modern Languages, will also reveal how UK migrants from Eastern European countries believe their experiences have influenced their integration into British society. 

For further information on this project, please view the press release issued by the University.
