Workshop 7-8 June 2017, University of Portsmouth.
The intersection between citizenship and identity: Contemporary processes of differentiation and exclusion
This workshop seeks to provide a critical context for theoretical and empirical examinations of the intersection between citizenship and identity. Observed as the dynamic bond between a sovereign political community and the individual, citizenship is expected to shape community-building processes. The significance of identity in these processes cannot be stressed enough – it is, only, by bringing citizenship and identity together that ‘imagined community’ can be turned real in the minds and lives of citizens and non-citizens.
