Cosmopolitanism (a special themed panel at the GSA’s Globalizing Cultures and Identities: Sport, Lifestyle, Heritage conference 5th-7th July) featuring Maria Rovisco, Nick Stevenson, Myria Georgiou, Chris Rumford and Mark Pope .
The panel hopes to raise the profile of cosmopolitanism in the work of the Global Studies Association and to offer new perspectives on questions of identity, representations of belonging, and citizenship. The panel draws together key contributors in the field.

Myria Georgiou‘s Gender, Migration, and the Media will be published by Routledge later this year. Mark Pope is completing his PhD at Royal Holloway and his research looks at the cosmopolitan frames employed by the media in coverage of human rights issues. Chris Rumford has published widely on cosmopolitanism, including the edited collection Cosmopolitanism and Europe (Liverpool University Press, 2007). Nick Stevenson has also published widely on cosmopolitanism, including Cultural Citizenship: Cosmopolitan Questions (Open Univ. Press, 2003).
