We gladly invite you to the first OWIM seminar, which will take place on November 12, 2019, at 17:30 in the City Hall of Krakow (Plac Świątych 3, Sala Lea). We inaugurate them with a lecture by prof. John Eade on the impact of international migration on cities on the example of London.
During the lecture, John Eade will describe the characteristics of London as a global city, outlining the history of migration to the city from the 17th century. It will focus on two waves of immigration after World War II – postcolonial migration from Bangladesh and migration of Poles after Poland’s accession to the European Union in 2004. He will also discuss the role of religion in the context of political representation of the community on the example of newly formed churches and mosques.
The lecture will be given in English. The organizers do not provide translation.
