Abstract:

The presentation provides an understanding of the multifaceted aspects of British Pakistani integration across generations from the female viewpoint. If offers an insight into the role of history, education and financial wealth as well as local and national events that can impact on an individuals and communities collective belonging. Drawing from stories across three generations gained through interviews and creative arts participatory events we tell the story of this communities continuing transformation. We gain an insight into the British Pakistani women’s journeys from migration in the 1960’s to their current lives, as a community with more than 60 years of roots in the UK. We seek to understand how integration is occurring for British Pakistani’s, drawing upon a transformative theory of biculturalism. We explore the variation between the different generations and how each generation is contributing to the evolving transformation of integration for the next.
