20/11/2014 - 21/11/2014

Coventry University, Priory St, Coventry CV1 5FB

Academic Workshop: Sense of Belonging in a Diverse Britain

‘Sense of belonging’ is a phrase often heard in discussions of the cohesion of our society and, particularly, instances of its breakdown. Following the summer 2011 riots commentators speculated about how rioters could have come to feel so little sense of belonging to their local area that they could loot and torch their local shops and incite such fear in their communities. The same questions are asked in the wake of terrorist attacks in which young British people brought up in Britain have murdered fellow citizens, and the need for belonging is frequently cited as a driver of gang membership.

Organised by Dialogue Society, Birmingham Branch and Centre for Peace and Reconciliation Studies, Coventry University.

Call for papers

Call for Papers: Trans-Atlantic Dialogues on Cultural Heritage: Heritage, Tourism and Traditions

Trans-Atlantic dialogues on cultural heritage began as early as the voyages of Leif Ericson and Christopher Columbus and continue through the present day. Each side of the Atlantic offers its own geographical and historical specificities expressed and projected through material and immaterial heritage. However, in geopolitical terms and through everyday mobilities, people, objects and ideas flow backward and forward across the ocean, each shaping the heritage of the other, for better or worse, and each shaping the meanings and values that heritage conveys. Please send abstracts of 300 words no later than 15th December 2014 to ironbridge@contacts.bham.ac.uk

Organised by Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage, University of Birmingham and the Collaborative for Cultural Heritage Management and Policy (CHAMP), University of Illinois .
