Unravelling multiculturalism, interculturalism and cosmopolitanism with speakers Handel Wright, Mica Nava, Ashwani Sharma and Roshini Kempadoo

About

Panel discussion led by Handel Kashope Wright, with respondents Mica Nava, Roshini Kempadoo and Ashwani Sharma. Handel Wright will analyse developments and limitations in the theories and politics of multiculturalism and diversity. He will be joined by panellists who will engage with Wright's analysis from the perspectives of their own research and practice. The discussion will include a review of the usefulness of terms such as multiculturalism, diversity, interculturalism and cosmopolitanism in the contemporary political context. Accelerating global trends in online social environments, the arts and popular culture confound the debate and everyday experiences of difference and social justice. The panel asks if our established theoretical and creative practices are adequate to the challenges posed by neo-liberalism, transnational urban cultures and emergent forms of bio-political racism. This event is a collaboration between Iniva and the Centre for Cultural Studies Research (CCSR) School of Art and Digital Industries, University of East London Speaker's biographies are available on Iniva's website
