Suzanne was recently awarded an ESRC Future Research Leaders grant (2015-2017) for a comparative project on ‘Super-diverse Streets: Economies and Spaces of Migration in UK Cities’, which builds on a previous London-based project, ‘Ordinary Streets’ http://lsecities.net/objects/research-projects/ordinary-streets.

Leeds Voices: Communicating superdiversity in the market

Leeds Voices is the first phase of a trans-disciplinary programme to explore modes of accommodation across diverse public spaces within the city of Leeds. Taking a multimodal focus on superdiversity, this project focuses on the voices of Leeds Kirkgate Market – a historical linguistic/cultural hub for dense interethnic exchanges that is currently undergoing rapid change. Over this Seminar Series, we consider processes of exceptional multi-ethnic accommodation and micro-interaction in Kirkgate Market within a wider discursive context of inter-ethnic conflict as increasingly normative.
