The roundtable will bring together a small group of leading scholars in this field to start a conversation about the implications of, and interrelationships between, superdiversity and planning from a critical perspective.

It will address some of the following questions and issues: Has the way we think about urban planning changed with the emergence of superdiversity? How might a superdiversity lens help us to address urban planning issues in contemporary society? Are new forms of spatialisation and/or segregation emerging in the context of superdiversity? How can a planning perspective help us to understand superdiversity?

Speakers include:

  • Yasminah Beebeejaun, University College London
  • Stacy Harwood, University of Illinois
  • Simon Pemberton, Keele University
  • Cecilia Wong, University of Manchester
  • Clare Rishbeth, University of Sheffield

The speakers will provide critical reflection on conceptual issues before an open discussion.  If you would like to attend this roundtable, please register online here.
