Don't Air the Dirty Laundry: Reflections of Women of Color on Graduate School (Edited Volume)
Deadline for Submission: March 15, 2015
What place is there for the unique and multifaceted identities of regions in a globalised world? How might we theorise a sustainable concept of the local that could survive into the future? How do online communities affect our experiences of the local?
The second symposium of the Leverhulme-funded 'Imaginaries of the Future' research network seeks to investigate what the concepts of local and regional identity might mean in the future. One of our key objectives is to explore these concepts in a way that avoids the risk of becoming either exclusionary and inward-facing, a mere neoliberal branding exercise, or morbidly nostalgic.
