Dr Nando Sigona, Birmingham FellowListen to the podcast of the keynote address given by IRiS academic Nando Sigona at the international symposium held in Oxford on 11-12 April. The paper shows the relevance of the concept of space and spatiality to debates on citizenship and political membership, expounding the concept of ‘campzenship’ and articulating the importance of the camp to discussions of belonging. The camp is a manifestation of the complexity of membership rather than the exception as which it has often been theorised.
