  • Thu 21 Mar 2019 09.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-03-20 13:00 2019-03-21 18:00 Europe/Paris Cultural Pluralism in Cities of the “Global South”

This conference focuses on cities that are emerging (or striving to emerge) as regional centres of power in the Global South. We focus on capital cities and major urban centres in Asian, African, and Latin American countries at different stages of the nation building process. We ask what terms like “urban,” “diversity,” and “cultural pluralism,” actually mean in these contexts. We do so by adopting a critical approach that questions official discourse, documents and policy programmes and compares
them to how relevant stakeholders understand the ‘city’, the ‘nation’, and ‘the global’. We want to unpack the power relations within the city and the ways in which the city projects itself beyond the national scale and positions itself both at a wider regional level and within global cultural hierarchies.
