Cultural Diversity and the City

Course Description

Understand the importance of cultural diversity to the thriving city

Cities all over the world have embraced cultural and religious diversity, creating unique heritages. On this course you will investigate both ‘old’ and ‘new’ diversities in city heritage in four different continents.

You will look at cities with a divisive heritage (Bristol as a slave port) and a post-migration heritage (such as Cologne in Germany). You will will also look at major post-colonial urban centres and how they used cultural diversity to revitalise inner city areas. You will also consider those cities that turn diversity into a branding tool, like Singapore or Doha.

This course is for anyone interested in the cultures of cities, but will be of particular interest to those working in the arts, culture and heritage.
