The Overarching Question
How, when and why do migrant people in Hull “display family”, both locally and transnationally? How is display interpreted by the local community and does this have implications for community cohesion?
Aims and Objectives of the Study
Aim One: To understand how, when and why migrant people in Hull “display family”, both locally and transnationally.
*To understand how migrant families display in the public arena;
*To understand if and how migrant “family display” changes with context, for example, in transnational communication, when in the presence of indigenous populations or when in the presence of co-located members of their home area networks;
*To understand if and how migrant “family display” changes over time, for example, at different stages in their migration story, if a family member leaves or arrives, or when family children start school.
Aim Two: To understand how display is interpreted by the local community.
*To explore how indigenous people describe migrant “family display”;
*To explore what meaning indigenous people give to migrant “family display”;
*To understand what factors influence indigenous interpretations of migrant “family display”.
Aim Three: To explore if local community interpretation of “family display” has implications for community cohesion in Hull.
*To explore how all families, migrant and indigenous, interact at sites of public “family display”;
*To understand if and how individual indigenous responses to migrant “family display” correlate with individual opinion towards migrants in the city.
