Cities all over the world have embraced cultural and religious diversity, creating unique heritages. On this Cultural Diversity and the City course from European University Institute (EUI) you will investigate both ‘old’ and ‘new’ diversities in city heritage in four different continents.

About

You will look at cities with a divisive heritage (Bristol as a slave port) and a post-migration heritage (such as Cologne in Germany). You will will also look at major post-colonial urban centres and how they used cultural diversity to revitalise inner city areas. You will also consider those cities that turn diversity into a branding tool, like Singapore or Doha.

By the end of the Cultural Diversity and the City course from European University Institute (EUI) , you'll be able to:

  • Identify the challenges and opportunities of cultural diversity in cities
  • Design creative solutions to deal with contested heritage
  • Assess labels aimed at promoting inclusive heritage in diverse cities
  • Explore the rise of transnational city networks for culture
  • Discuss the rise of regional and global cultural hubs in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa
