UCLan-MIDEX Webinar: ‘Landscapes of un/belonging: an empirical psychosocial study of Lithuanian migration to London since the early 1990s’, by Asta Binkauskaite

21 June 2023

This talk will shed some light on a poorly-known country, Lithuania. Although its population has been significantly decreasing, the academic literature is largely silent – even that of the UK, the prime destination of Lithuanian emigrants. In my research, a group-based image-led methodology (Visual Matrix) is used in combination with Free Association Narrative Interviews: both employ associative methods. My study is looking at the cultural imaginary – the ways migrants imagine their collective social life. This presentation will focus on an image-led way of analysis of the cultural imaginary of Lithuanian migrants in London.

Asta Binkauskaitė is a PhD candidate in Psychosocial Studies at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). She holds a BA and MA in Fine Arts from Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts, Lithuania, as well as an MA in Art Psychotherapy from Goldsmiths (University of London). Asta also holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Group Analytic Studies from the Institute of Group Analysis (London) and Birkbeck (University of London).
