SOCI 335 (3) | Diversity in London: Minority Ethnicities, Immigration and Integration

London, home to nearly 9 million people, is arguably one of the most diverse cities in the world, with 40% of its population born abroad and 300 different languages spoken in the capital. Through reading, discussion and fieldwork, this course will focus on the character of ethnic, national and religious diversity in London and how different transnational communities have dealt with arriving, settling and living life as an immigrant in London. Starting with the post-war period and the 1948 British Nationality Act, the course will explore the experiences of minority ethnicities living in London and cover the period right up to the present day, exploring political and cultural responses within London to different groups (the South Asian community, Windrush generation, EU community etc.) and exploring how these have changed over time. The course will introduce students to the distinctive form and nature of Britainís multiculturalism and critically analyze the legacy of the British Empire. Through classroom teaching and fieldtrip-based research, students will assess the way in which London has experienced the process of immigration and integration and explore the creation of complex communities whose cultures shape the modern city today.
