Governance & Citizenship Conference
Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 9:00 AM – Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 1:30 PM (EDT) Detroit, MI
The affordances of citizenship are bound in many ways to structures of governance that provide and at the same time deny access to power. While formal structures of governance establish rights and responsibilities, there are many additional forms of governance people use to orchestrate and affirm their community membership, among them are civic organizations, community groups, and NGOs. The 2015 annual conference will explore the many dimensions of the theme of governance and citizenship.
The 2015 keynote speaker is Frederick Cooper, Professor of History at NYU.
Professor Cooper’s field of study is Africa and his areas of research include: modern Africa, empires in world history, colonization and decolonization, and the social sciences and the colonial situation.
We will also be joined by Juan Cole, author of “The New Arabs: How the Millennial Generation is Changing the Middle East”
