Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,3, University of Osnabrück, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The name ‘Spitalfields’ refers to St. Mary’s Spital, a hospital and a priory founded in 1197, at the east end of London. Up to the 17th century the area mainly consisted of gardens and fields, but with the waves of immigrants the house building started. Spitalfields has been a great access point for immigrants from all over the world in the last few centuries.

In 1685 the ‘Edict of Nantes’ from 1598 was revoked by Louis XIV ( and the radical Protestants in France were forced to leave the country. Many of them settled down in Spitalfields. During the 19th century the population in Ireland grew poorer and poorer. Many left their home country to try to make their living elsewhere and the better part of them also moved to Spitalfields. At the same time the Jews in Eastern Europe were persecuted and they, too, chose Spitalfields as their new living space. Eventually in the 1970s people from South Asia started populating Spitalfields for the better working and living conditions in Great Britain. Today the area is called ‘Banglatown’ and a centre of South Asian Life and culture in London. Many of the street signs in ‘Banglatown’ are both in English and Bengali and it consists of lots of restaurants with Bengali Food. The following peace of work will describe the living conditions of the particular groups of immigrants in detail and explain their influence on Spitalfields. [...]
