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?
