Visceral Cosmopolitanism

Prof. Mica Nava, University of East London

 

13 February 2008, 16:00-17:30 

 

Clifton Campus, ICAn George Eliot Building room 219.

Nottingham

 

Abstract 

Mica Nava will discuss some of the main conceptual and historical issues raised in her new book Visceral Cosmopolitanism: Gender, Culture and the Normalisation of Difference (Berg 2007). This focuses mainly on the UK 20th century experience, and as the title suggests, in contrast to most theoretical work on cosmopolitanism, its concern is not with universal rights issues or the 'intellectual and aesthetic openness' and 'detachment' of the global traveller, but with cosmopolitanism as a structure of feeling -- as an empathetic, inclusive and sometime unconscious range of identifications with others, otherness and the foreign, which find expression in vernacular, quotidian, imaginary and domestic forms. An exploration of the specific nature and development of this mood in the Britain, and particularly London, over the last century highlights the way gender has been significant force in the formation of the present; similarly the specific nature of British class formation has had an unexpected influence on the relative diminution of the social significance of epidermal difference in contemporary urban culture. The talk will explore some of these issues by drawing on historical and biographical narratives. More details of the book can be found at: http://www.bergpublishers.com/Products/9781845202439/tabid/2093/Default.aspx <http://www.bergpublishers.com/Products/9781845202439/tabid/2093/Default.aspx>
