Perspective Tour with Dr Emma Carmel

The Edge1pm | FREE

In these tours we invite experts in connected fields to bring their unique perspectives to Borderlines.


Hosted by Dr Emma Carmel, Senior Lecturer, Department of Social & Policy Sciences at University of Bath. The tour will focus on authority and belonging. In this tour we will think about who has authority to determine what belonging is, and who belongs on what conditions, as well as who has authority to speak about or to own the places and cultures we inhabit.

The free walking tour starts promptly at 1pm, will last a maximum of 20 minutes and is open for questions and comments afterwards.
