National identity integration and belonging among white British middle-class British adults in north-east London/Essex

Amy Clarke // Geography // Wednesday 15th February 2017 // 1-2pm // Arts C 133


In this talk I will present the background of my research and offer some thoughts on the question of how white British-born people (in the suburbs of London) understand other people as belonging (or not) to a British ‘national community of belonging’. Where do they draw the line between ‘national us’ and ‘foreign them’? And, what does this tell us about contemporary processes of inclusion and exclusion?

She is now in the third year of her PhD into white British understandings of national identity and belonging in a London suburb.
