Webinar: What Happened to the Multicultural City? Reflections on an arts–politics collaboration
We are pleased to invite you to a roundtable “What Happened to the Multicultural City? Reflections on an arts–politics collaboration” co-organised by the PSA Ethnopolitics Specialist Group and Centre for the Study of Ethnic Conflict, Queen’s University Belfast on Thursday, April 29 at 14:00 BST
Between 2019 and 2021 political scientist Licia Cianetti (Royal Holloway, University of London) and artists Farwa Moledina (Birmingham), Andrejs Strokins (Riga), Alexandre Francisco “Diaphra” (Lisbon), and Galas Mbengue (Turin) embarked in a multidisciplinary dialogue on the ways in which austerity, nativism and crisis shape the city, how it is governed, and how it is experienced by different residents. The result is the multi-media web-book www.multiculturalcities.com. In this PSA Ethnopolitics roundtable Licia Cianetti, Andrejs Strokins and Alexandre Francisco “Diaphra” will be in conversation with Alena Pfoser (Loughborough University), Amina Easat-Daas (De Montfort University, Centre for Urban Research on Austerity), and Alesa Herero (activist, artist and writer, based in Lisbon) to discuss the web-book, interdisciplinary collaboration, crisis and the city.
