Superdiversity International Conference
We are holding a major international conference, 'Superdiversity: Theory, method and practice in an era of change' between 23-24 June 2014. The aim of the conference is to map the state-of-the-art knowledge about superdiversity and to draw an agenda for future research in the field. We are inviting academics, including doctoral researchers from sociology, social policy, geography, psychology, economics, medicine, demography, anthropology, development studies and other disciplines, policy makers and practitioners with an interest in superdiversity, to submit papers, workshop proposals or posters on any aspect relating to superdiversity.
Let us know if you are interested in helping to organise activities for DRs by joining the conference committee. This is a great opportunity to be involved in shaping an exciting high profile academic event and we will support you through this process.
