26.06.2017 Steven Vertovec "Conceiving 'diversity'"

Montag, 26.06.2017, 14:00 - 15:30
Tagungszentrum Sternwarte der Universität Göttingen, Geismar Landstraße 11, 37083 Göttingen

Abstract: In this lecture I will explore several ways in which the concept of 'diversity' has been conceived, evoked and imagined in both public discourse and academic study. I will also discuss some of the conundrums of trying to develop a social scientific approach to a topic/theme that is often both highly normative and tactically vague. Some additional or alternative ways of conceiving and studying 'diversity' will be suggested as well.

Der öffentliche Vortrag in englischer Sprache findet im Rahmen der internationalen Summer School "Globalization and Diversity" statt.
