What is Community?
‘Community’ can arguably seen as a buzzword of the last fifteen years attracting not only increasing levels of academic interest and research but significant attention from politicians and policy makers. It is, however, also a concept that is interpreted and used in a wide variety of ways. As the first research seminar of the Centre for Research on Communities and Cultures this talk will explore the notion of ‘community’ and provide an overview of the development of the term. Starting with earliest definitions and examining recent reconceptualisations it seeks to examine the differences and similarities between the varied interpretations. Although community “has been used in so many ways that it has been described as an omnibus word" (Poplin, 1979: 3), the talk will argue that there are some key features that unite the varied definitions. The talk will also explore current and emerging focus in academic research about communities and discuss opportunities for further research.
