International Symposium: Cities Against Nationalism?

The Cities against Nationalism? one-day international symposium, hosted by Kent Interdisciplinary Centre for Spatial Studies (KISS) and the School of Anthropology and Conservation, aims at investigating the relatively under-theorised research field of urban geopolitics and nationalism.

Given the recent resurgence of ethnic and territorial nationalism, the symposium will explore the rising tensions between national and urban regimes, with particular reference to the plight of minorities and immigrants. The discussion generated by the symposium aims to make a contribution to the theorisation of both nationalism and urban studies.

The event is free and open to all. You can find out more via this article on the SAC News and Event blog.
