Goldsmiths UCU are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a talk from Gavan Titley, co-author of *The Crises of Multiculturalism: Racism in a Neoliberal Age* (http://bit.ly/HNgVdD). 1pm Wednesday 2 May, Goldsmiths College, (room TBA) Gavan’s widely praised book challenges the familiar narrative of the ‘rise and fall’ of multiculturalism by questioning the existence of a coherent era of multiculturalism in the first place. Controversies and organised racist activity in recent years are argued to be a projection of neoliberal anxieties onto the social realities of lived multiculture. The talk, which will be around half an hour long and is titled *What happens if you throw a war, and somebody comes?: ‘Multicultural Crisis’ after Breivik*, is open to all.
