The Living Multiculture project comes to the end of its funded life on 31st October 2014. To mark this phase of the project finishing and its next phase of dissemination and public engagement beginning, the research team would like to take this opportunity to present some of the work of the project and share its key findings with you. We have organised this event in ways that connect the Living Multiculture project with the wider sociology, geography and policy communities.

The Living Multiculture project has reached its mid life point and the first and largest phase of the fieldwork has been completed. The research team is now beginning to analyse the data that has been collected as we prepare for the second phase of the project’s fieldwork. We would like to take this opportunity to share the story of the research so far and the project’s preliminary findings. We also see this seminar as a way of engaging feedback and thinking reflexively about the next stages of the research process. Speakers from the Living Multiculture research team will be Sarah Neal, Hannah Jones, Christy Kulz, Allan Cochrane, Katy Bennett and Giles Mohan. Refreshments will be provided and the seminar will be followed by a book launch for Race, Multiculture and Social Policy by Alice Bloch, Sarah Neal and John Solomos.
