The programme comprises of 4 recently appointed research chairs, 6 RCUK postdoctoral fellows, a leverhulme postdoctoral fellow, a RICC postdoctoral associate, and numerous members of academic and postgraduate staff in the faculty of humanities at the University of Manchester; RICC provides a framework for scholars at Manchester to collaborate with international researchers through the examination of the distinctive features of contemporary cosmopolitanism; providing the context for an ongoing and open debate about the meaning and significance of this term, both historically and for contemporary culture, lies at the heart of the aim of this institute; the research responds to a world in which global restructuring and growing inequalities are fuelling religious and ethnic conflicts and growing national anxieties, as well as movements for social justice, reconciliation, interconnection and the development of common perspectives; there is a strong commitment to examining the precedents of cosmopolitanism, and its global variants, so that current developments are understood in a historical and geographical context; anchoring debates about the transformation of the human within particular institutional locations and across gender and race divides, the goal is to develop knowledge that combines local and transnational perspectives; establishing a research culture where academic staff and postgraduates work collaboratively, RICC seeks to provide a stimulating and dynamic environment for intellectual and political exchange around the highly contested notion of cosmopolitanism; in pursuing a range of integrated inquiries into these issues, this centre also involve existing research strengths in order to place the University of Manchester as a leading international centre.
