The launch event for a two year interdisciplinary project Making it to the Registers: Documenting Migrant Carers’ Experiences of Registration and Fitness to Practise.
Join us for the launch event of Dr Priyasha Saksena and Professor Marie-Andrée Jacob’s two year interdisciplinary project Making it to the Registers: Documenting Migrant Carers’ Experiences of Registration and Fitness to Practise alongside Dr Nasreen Ali (University of Bedfordshire) and project partner BAPIO (British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin).
The project will be funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and seeks to interrogate the lived dimensions of the regulation of global, migrant carers. It focuses on the creation and maintenance of the professionalised healthcare workforce in the UK. Specifically, the project aims to unpack the gate-keeping functions performed by two regulatory tools, registration and fitness to practise, appraising their impact on the experiences of migrant carers, in both historical and contemporary perspectives.
It will involve a series of activities, including the creation of a digital archive of interviews and a digital exhibition of meaningful objects associated with professional registration, academic events and public-facing activities such as sharing events with migrant healthcare workers and youth theatre.
