Paper title: Bazaars, superdiverse environments and cosmopolitan practices in Helsinki (presented on 18.9.2020)
Short abstract: In Helsinki, ethnic retail has been transforming abandoned retail premises into lively places. Everyday intercultural communication faces challenges relating to the politics of identity. As tasty as ethnic cuisine may be to an autochthonous Finn, it doesn't stimulate cosmopolitan practices.
