Registration for the Ethnography, Diversity and Urban Space conference

Registration for the Ethnography, Diversity and Urban Space conference
at St Anne's College, Oxford, 22-23 September 2011, is now open.

About the conference:

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.

Keynote speakers: Ash Amin (Cambridge), Nina Glick Schiller (Manchester)

The conference is organised by the ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and
Society (COMPAS) at the University of Oxford.
