Ethnography, Diversity and Urban Space

International Conference – 22-23 September 2011
St Anne’s College, Oxford University

Organised by the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) at the University of Oxford.

The intensification of global flows in the current period has led scholars to describe cities like London as ‘super-diverse’: a ‘diversification of diversity’, with a population characterised by multiple ethnicities, countries of origin, immigration statuses, and age profiles.

The aims of this conference are: to address the missing dimension of migration and mobility in the literature on urban space, and the missing dimension of spatiality in the literature on diversity; and to develop new modes of inquiry appropriate to the contemporary challenge of super-diversity.

Conference convenors:
Mette Berg, COMPAS and ISCA
Ben Gidley, COMPAS
Vanessa Hughes, COMPAS
Nando Sigona, COMPAS
