Ethnicity, Citizenship and Politics

Free Admission

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship at the University of Bristol, founding director Tariq Modood is joined by Bhikhu Parekh to look back at the work of the Centre and discuss current research.

With the growth of the Muslim populations in Western Europe and concerns about integration, the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship has been at the forefront of co-ordinating and promoting the study of ethnicity, politics and citizenship. How do ethno-religious identities and the governance of religious diversity impact on questions of integration, equality, multiculturalism and secularism?

Modood and Parekh both introduce their latest books Essays on Secularism and Multiculturalism and Ethnocentric Political Theory: The Pursuit of Flawed Universals and discuss the importance of challenging the liberal biases with Judith Squires.

How to Book/

This event is free, but booking is required. Online booking is via Eventbrite and managed by Festival of Ideas. Please use the contact function in Eventbrite or get in touch with any booking queries.

We have restricted the number of tickets that can be booked to one per transaction. This has been introduced in an effort to stop people automatically booking multiple tickets without confirming if they have guests to go with them. We hope this will help to limit the number of ‘no shows’ at the events, which currently run at around 35% of bookings.  If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again. The little extra effort involved will hopefully put off those who don’t really need more than one, but not those who do.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers. Please arrive in plenty of time to take your seat as we will be admitting anyone waiting without a ticket into empty seats 5 minutes before start.

The Festival of Ideas endeavours to hold its events in venues that are accessible to all. The Reception Room in the Wills Memorial Building has a loop system and is accessible to wheelchair users. For more information about accessing the venue, check here. If you have specific access concerns, please do contact us with any questions.

We sometimes film and photograph Festival of Ideas events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
