Rochelle Almeida speaks at the South Asia Seminar on 24 January 2017.

Despite the fact that India's Anglo-Indians migrated en masse following Independence in 1947 and have spent almost 70 years as a settler-community, they remain relatively unknown in the United Kingdom and rarely counted among South Asia’s diaspora. This seminar will address their trajectory from immigrants who faced hostility and rejection in the Post-World War II era to a well-established and well-accepted ethnic minority in the multi-cultural environment of contemporary Britain. It will also analyse reasons for their 'invisibility' and the cultural erasure this assimilation has engendered.
