Conable Distinguished Lecture Series in International Studies: “Multiculturalism in Multinational States”
Co-Hosted w/the Department of Political Science (RIT)
Given by Audie Klotz, Professor, Department of Political Science
Syracuse University. Klotz is author of several books about international relations and apartheid, including Migration and National Identity in South Africa, 1860-2010 (Cambridge).
Dr. Klotz’s talk explores how controversy over multiculturalism in Europe has reinvigorated questions about how liberal democracies should integrate diverse populations. Encompassing both minorities within minorities and minorities within majorities, the juxtaposition of Canada and South Africa underscores that an ideal multiculturalism rests uneasily upon an underlying hierarchy of a national majority over all subnational groups.
