Migration and Urban Change in London and Paris

Queen Mary University of London

Program description

Migration and Urban Change in London and Paris

This module will be delivered in collaboration with the University of London Institute in Paris.

This module takes a critical look at two of the most exciting and dynamic cities on the planet, exploring the ways in which they have been shaped by global migration patterns both historically and in the present day. Focusing on core themes including inequality and difference, integration and borders, heritage and diversity, it explores the specific colonial legacies of London and Paris and how these have shaped contemporary processes and lived experiences of migration in each city. In the context of a growing hardening of the border between the UK and continental Europe, this module will provide students with the opportunity to explore how these institutional bordering processes are played out on the ground and to consider the convergences and differences between these distinct, yet closely connected, urban contexts.
