SR200201031 Remembering East Timorese migration: History, memory and identity

  • Hearman, Vannessa (Principal Investigator/Chief Investigator A)

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to examine the history of East Timorese migration to Australia and how it is remembered within the diaspora and in Australian society today. The project expects to generate new insights into how diasporic actors across several generations negotiate questions of history, memory and identity after the independence of East Timor. Expected outcomes of this project include an understanding of the diversity- and interactions of the East Timorese diaspora with Australians and other migrant communities over time. Benefits to Australia include greater insights into the changing attitudes and needs of this long term diasporic community which can improve service delivery in Australia and bilateral relations with East Timor.
