Contemporary communities of people may be organised around a location, work or shared past-times, but also increasingly so around shared ideas, needs and values, life practices and styles. This workshop looks at how we establish their boundaries, how they are tied to concepts of “identity”, define belonging or not-belonging, and what dynamics guard and adapt these boundaries.
