You are here:

  • Anna-Louise Milne (ULIP) A long(er) history of an ‘abcès de fixation’: Community Networks, food distributions and migration in North-East Paris?
  • Inės Hassan (Leicester) Cultural diversity and Republicanism in urban France.

The session will be chaired by Charlotte Faucher (Manchester).


Anna-Louise Milne’s work focused on interconnections between small and major literary and ethnographic reviews across the European continent in the first half of the 20th century. More recently she has started working on migration and published 75, an experiment in urban poetics and history  (Gallimard 2016). Her work on migration also led to the creation of the Paris Centre for Migrant Writing and Expression at the University of London Institute in Paris, where she is based.

Ines Hassen focusses on comparative urban policies and globalisation, including cross-cultural local governance, multiculturalism in the urban landscape and city branding. In 2017-2018 she was also part of the International Panel on Exiting Violence which was a sociological research project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York based at La Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme in Paris.
