Professor Enzo Colombo is Associate Professor of Sociology of Culture and Sociology of Intercultural Relations, Department of Social and Political Studies, University of Milan. His research focuses on Socialization, multiculturalism, and etc.

Abstract:

After introducing the humanistic and the anthropologic concept of culture, this lecture will critically debate the idea of multicultural societies. Starting from three “ideal patterns” of managing cultural difference in the public sphere (assimilation, pluralism and encapsulation, roughly bind, respectively, to the experience of France, Great Britain, and Germany during the second half of the last century) we will then discuss the current alleged “multiculturalism backlash” in political discourse and policies throughout Europe.
