Living cities will introduce you to the impact of migration upon the formation of ethnic and racial identities with particular reference to the city. You will acquire an understanding of the politics of migration and the formation of urban ethnicities. You will also gain an understanding of the ways in which cities become sites for the production of ethnic, racial, gender, sexual, class and postcolonial identities, as well as places that become associated in the popular imagination with prestige, respectability, social stigma, violence and decay. In doing so, you will gain a detailed theoretical and ethnographic understanding of the ways in which cities become sites for the production of power, politics, passion and social identities.
