Due to the current health emergency, we suspend the conference "The City and the Experience of Diversity" with Daniel Innerarity. When circumstances allow, we will announce a new date.
Place: Palau Macaya (Pg. De San Juan, 108)
This session aims to reflect on the growing voices that problematize diversity and long for homogeneous past imaginary. Radicalisms and violence of different origin that currently coexist on a world stage, and also European, where the protection and guarantee of rights and respect for diversity is stressed. On the other hand, the city, also the scene of multiple conflicts and exclusions, has been the form of organization of coexistence that has most favored the integration of diversity, by virtue of its shape, its spaces and its culture The current urban transformations raise the question about whether it can continue to fulfill that function.The objective, therefore, will be to analyze what kind of responses can be drawn to address these problems, focusing on the prevention of conflicts from the ethical, cultural and social perspective.
Daniel Innerarity, Professor of Philosophy and Social Policy, will be the guest speaker at the conference. Innerarity is an Ikerbasque researcher at the University of the Basque Country and director of the Institute for Democratic Governance.
The session will be moderated by Carme Méndez, director of the Gypsy Secretariat Foundation in Catalonia.
The conference will be in Spanish.
