The Riots in Context: Intellectual and Political Agendas

November 8, 2011, 3-5pm, University Place 5.210.

The Research Institute for Cosmopolitan Cultures is organising a seminar to discuss the recent riots in cities in the UK. Members from RICC will give introductions to a series of short readings by academics, journalists and bloggers, and a general discussion will follow. Please join us to discuss the varied responses to the riots from the UK and abroad, and to examine what can be gained from putting these perspectives in dialogue. Readings can be found on the RICC website and pasted below. Please read ahead of time if possible.

Please RSVP to caitriona.devery@manchester.ac.uk
