'Online and offline traps of multiculturality on a diasporized planet'

The Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS) and College of Social Sciences (CoSS) at the University of Birmingham are delighted to announce the distinguished lecture by Professor Zygmunt Bauman on ‘Online and offline traps of multiculturality on a diasporized planet’.

Zygmunt Bauman is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Leeds. He is one of the world's most eminent social theorists. His creativity and sociological imagination inspired generations of social scientists across the world. Bauman’s several awards include the prestigious European Amalfi Prize for Sociology and the Social Sciences (1992) and the Theodor W Adorno Prize (1998). His published work extends to 57 books and well over a hundred articles, including sociology classics such as Modernity and the Holocaust (Polity, 1989); Modernity and Ambivalence (Polity, 1991); Liquid Modernity (Polity, 2000) and Wasted Lives (Polity, 2003).
