Citizenship and its Others

12 - 13 March 2012
Worcester College, Oxford

This symposium will explore the concept of citizenship by considering its Others. It will consider the relations between the others of the nation state as formally constituted (those who do not have the legal status of citizenship) and others of the nation state as a community of value (criminals, the workless, the sexually deviant).

These Others are politicised figures – ‘folk devils’ – and also legally constructed, and discourse and law are highly gendered and racialised.

Interrogating citizenship in this way will shed light on the concept of the good citizen, and enable us to discuss: Do we need to move beyond citizenship, and if so, how can we do so?

This symposium is organized by the COMPAS Citizenship and Belonging cluster and is by invitation only.
