The study of Cosmopolitanism has been transformed in the last 20 years and the subject itself has become highly discussed across the social sciences and the humanities. The Ashgate Research Companion to Cosmopolitanism pursues distinct theoretical orientations and empirical analyses, bringing together mainstream discussions with the newest thinking and developments on the main themes, debates and controversies surrounding the subject. The contributions are grouped into three parts, each reflecting a different analytical focus within a variety of intellectual disciplines and methodological approaches. Part I (Cultural Cosmopolitanism) is primarily concerned with the empirically-grounded aspects of cosmopolitanism which are apparent in mundane practices and lifestyle options on the micro-scale of daily interactions. It focuses on the outlooks and lived experience of ordinary individuals and groups in concrete situational contexts and social structures. Part II (Political Cosmopolitanism) sets out the main topics and issues dealt with by scholars writing within the tradition of political cosmopolitanism. Addressing timely issues such as human rights, global justice, and global democracy, it focuses on Cosmopolitanism as an ethico-political ideal and a political project to devise new forms of supranational and transnational governance. Part III (Debates) reflects the major debates and controversies on the subject and deliberately eschews any bland consensus to instead foreground the key arguments and lively intellectual discussions in play across disciplinary divisions. Featuring contributions from key thinkers in the field, including Ulrich Beck, David Held and Martha Nussbaum, this comprehensive volume will be a valuable resource for all academics and students working within this area of study.

About the Author:

Maria Rovisco is Lecturer in Media and Communication at the University of Leicester, UK. She has published articles on mediated cosmopolitanism, globalization, and on the cultural borders of Europe. Among her recent publications are the co-edited books Cosmopolitanism in Practice (2009), The Ashgate Research Companion to Cosmopolitanism (2011) and Cosmopolitanism, Religion and the Public Sphere (2014). Magdalena Nowicka, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Germany

Review:

'It is difficult to imagine a more stimulating and valuable resource to scholars interested in cosmopolitanism. With an impressive list of contributors, the Companion to Cosmopolitanism tackles some of the most important political debates on the subject and sets the agenda for future research. This excellent volume encapsulates the possibilities, challenges, and criticisms involved in cosmopolitan thinking.' Catarina Kinnvall, Lund University, Sweden 'This is a thick volume, and Rovisco and Nowicka have been well served by The Ashgate Research Companion series whose production values are high. The 23 chapters examine cosmopolitanism in connexion with topics including: cities, borders, consumption, capabilities, memory, feminism, globalisation, mega-events, diaspora and postcolonialism. There is a timeliness to their volume... The Ashgate volume surely demonstrates the fecundity of cosmopolitanism as a theme and the liveliness of current debates surrounding it. If the 'cosmopolitical' is a global material condition, then, according to Pheng Cheah (p. 211), we are yet to generate a mass-based cosmopolitan consciousness. This volume helps towards what is yet to be achieved.' International Journal of Cultural Policy
