Dr Elster and Professor Wessendorf write:

‘The term ‘super-diversity’, first coined by Steven Vertovec, is intended to encapsulate a level of population complexity surpassing anything previously experienced. This ‘complex’ diversity is increasingly found in contemporary cities where residents represent a cross-section of cultures, ethnic groups, countries of origin, religious backgrounds, languages, age profiles and labour market experiences.

This seminar looks at implications of, and attitude towards, living with ‘difference’ and the multiple experiences of conviviality, stigmatisation, exclusion and belonging across different generations of (im)migrants living within two diverse areas of London’.
