Events guide: “How to be Cosmopolitan”

Engaging with the other

HALIFAX – If cosmopolitanism is understood as a “willingness to engage with the other”, is it an essential ingredient of Canada’s multi-ethnic, immigrant-receiving cities? Can only the jet-setting elite be cosmopolitan, or can we conceive of street-corner cosmopolitans too? These are some of the questions being asked and addressed by Dr. Martha Radice this Friday at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

Sponsored by the Atlantic Metropolis Centre (AMC) and the Dalhousie Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Dr. Radice’s presentation of her ethnographical fieldwork  is part of the AMC’s Working Paper Series. The Series is dedicated to promoting policy-relevant research related to immigration, population migrations and cultural diversity.

Following the talk there will be a reception, if you’re lucky you may find a cosmopolitan sipping a cosmopolitan…or not.
