Current Research Projects

Inhabiting Multiculturalism
Inhabiting Multiculturalism is the title of my manuscript in progress. It is an ongoing writing and research project which explores the nature of quotidian multiculturalism and the implications for how we imagine and manage culturally diverse western societies today. The book explores everyday diversity from various points of view, including; ‘Sensuous Multiculturalism’, Diversity Hope, and Reciprocity; Diasporic vs Local modes of Inhabitance; Riots and other moments of multicultural rupture; The Politics of (In)Civility; Cross-Cultural Habitus; The future of Multiculturalism; and ‘new’ Anti-racisms.
