Super-Diversity in Everyday Life

Special Issue Ethnic and Racial Studies coming soon

In the introduction to this special issue, we consider a number of questions central to the study of super-diversity in urban contexts in Western Europe and the United States. We begin with a discussion of why the super-diversity concept has had more impact on scholarship in Western Europe than the United States, where it has had much less resonance. We explore the nature and effects of super-diversity for ongoing social relations in everyday life, considering both the positive and negative consequences. And we conclude with a consideration of some unfulfilled promises of super-diversity, including integrating the dimension of power into the analyses as well as finding ways to examine the many bases and intersections of different forms of diversity, while at the same time not downplaying the role of continued and long-term inequalities, such as race and class, that typically remain of primary importance in super-diverse settings.

Limburgser dan vlaai: tijd voor een Kinderpardon zonder sentiment

Column en radio-interview op Brainwash.nl

De asielkinderen Lili en Howick mochten uiteindelijk in Nederland blijven. Het kan je moeilijk ontgaan zijn, want juist de enorme aandacht en steun in de publieke opinie deden staatssecretaris Mark Harbers zwichten. Arjen Lubach kritiseerde de selectiviteit van dit type ‘talkshowpardons‘, waardoor de meest mediagenieke asielkinderen wel mogen blijven, terwijl honderden anderen gewoon naar, wat eufemistisch heet, hun land van herkomst worden teruggestuurd. Lubach heeft gelijk dat dit onrechtvaardig is – daarom pleiten velen voor een generaler, royaler pardon.

‘Iedereen is een beetje socioloog geworden’

INTERVIEW Sociale Vraagstukken: Jan Willem Duyvendak en Godfried Engbersen over de Nederlandse sociologie – ‘Iedereen is een beetje socioloog geworden’

De Nederlandse sociologie vervreemdt van de samenleving, klonk vijf jaar geleden de noodkreet. Is het tij gekeerd? De scheidend en de aantredend voorzitter van de Nederlandse Sociologische Vereniging, Jan Willem Duyvendak en Godfried Engbersen, zijn gematigd positief. ‘Tijdens de formatie lag het SCP-oeuvre op tafel.’
