Séminaire MAGMET (MigrAnts in Global METropolises)

La séance qui devait avoir lieu le lundi 22 mai avec Suzanne Hall Director of the Cities Programme in the Department of Sociology, London School of Economics est annulée et nous nous en excusons.

City streets offer a vantage point to explore the social life of large structural processes such as global migration. Drawing on research from four migrant streets across UK cities, this talk examines the spaces and economies forged by migrant proprietors in the urban margins. I explore how enduring structures of discrimination consign certain groups to certain parts of cities, and certain kinds of work. I simultaneously expand on the adaptive repertoires of proprietors to reconfigure shop, street and city.
