Between 2019 and 2021 political scientist Licia Cianetti (Royal Holloway, University of London) and artists Farwa Moledina (Birmingham, UK), Andrejs Strokins (Riga, Latvia), Alexandre Francisco “Diaphra” (Lisbon, Portugal), and Galas Mbengue (Turin, Italy) embarked in a multidisciplinary dialogue on the ways in which austerity, nativism and crisis shape the city, how it is governed, and how it is experienced by different residents. The result is the multi-media web-book www.multiculturalcities.com.
On April 29, 2pm (UK time) Licia Cianetti, Andrejs Strokins and Alexandre Francisco “Diaphra” will be in conversation with Alena Pfoser (Loughborough University, UK), Amina Easat-Daas (De Montfort University, Centre for Urban Research on Austerity, UK), and Alesa Herero (activist, artist and writer, based in Lisbon, Portugal) to discuss the web-book, interdisciplinary collaboration, crisis and the city. This is part of the Political Science Association (PSA) Ethnopolitics SG online roundtables series.
