Yet Another Conference of Interest

20 05 2011

CfP: Ethnography, Diversity and Urban Space. 2011. September 22-23

COMPAS, University of Oxford, Oxford

Call for Papers:  Deadline 6 June 2011

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 characterized by multiple ethnicities, countries of origin, immigration statuses, and age profiles (Vertovec 2007).

The aims of this conference to be held at COMPAS <http://www.compas.ox.ac.uk>  (University of Oxford) on 22-23 September 2011 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.

We invite proposals for papers which investigate aspects related to the conference themes and we welcome in particular proposals that focus on the following areas:

  • Understanding belonging and diversity in complex urban spaces
  • Changing practices of fieldwork and new and old modes of ethnographic investigation

Abstracts from early career researchers are especially welcome.  For full details, see: http://www.compas.ox.ac.uk/events/forthcoming/#c802
