The Open University held its first six-day Symposium 'Citizenship after Orientalism' in February 2012. The Symposium included the Conference 'Opening the Boundaries of Citizenship', an International PhD School 'Tracing Colonialism and Orientalism in Social and Political Thought', and a series of workshops addressing specific topics on critical new ways of conceptualising citizenship.
The Symposium was organised by the European Research Council funded project Oecumene: Citizenship after Orientalism based at The Open University. The project will offer further symposiums, the next one of which will take place 12 - 13 November 2012 in London. Each symposium will focus on specific aspects connected with reconsidering citizenship beyond Eurocentrism.
