Join us for “Living for the City,” the inaugural public event for Belonging Today, a new Working Group at the Institute for Public Knowledge. In this discussion about ways of belonging and its opportunities, perils and transformations in New York City, we are pleased to welcome four speakers.

Eric Klinenberg from NYU will discuss “Going Solo in NYC”, Nancy Foner from CUNY will ask “How Exceptional is New York as an Immigrant City?” and Jess Row will share his insights from his collection of short stories Nobody Ever Gets Lost. Craig Calhoun from NYU will reflect on “Cosmopolitanism and Belonging.” The event will be moderated by Kaisa Ketokivi.
