Solidarity: Interaction among different ethnic groups in the urban context


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 31 Aug 10:00 - 14:00


Room 1.44

The rapid urbanization of the present times is a worldwide phenomenon. Cities are part of the larger societies and are in a constant process of internal change, growing as a result of both birth and migration. The role of migration in the context of social change and economic development is an important factor. Moreover, inter-regional migration has a very crucial role to play in the process of industrialization and urbanization mainly in the developing nations. Inter-ethnic relations in the multi-ethnic societies of the developing world are in a fluid state because of two processes: 1) the process of modernization which provides incentives and opportunities for mobility, and creates the conditions for increasing internal migration; and 2) consequent to such a process there is the growth of ethnic identification and ethnic cohesion as nurtured by modernization. The different communities of megacities in the multi-ethnic countries may exhibit highly structural exclusiveness on the one hand, but on the other, there may be a tendency to influence each other for natural adaptation and adjustment. In this situation, there is a possibility that an adaptive culture is adopted, whereby anyone can survive through interaction.

In French urban anthropology, ethnicity has been for a long time considered by most of its scholars as an archaism, indicating a type of backwards identity only to be overcome by citizenship. This was due both to its colonial past confining people within the French Empire in their ethnic identity, and to its contemporary secular and republican ideology willing to bypass ethnic differences. This st ... More

In Buenos Aires, however, tango dance is not just a genre of performing arts played exclusively on stage. A considerable number of ordinary men and women of different rang ... More
