This event is one in a series of CRESC workshops which bring into inter-disciplinary conversation scholars whose research focus is social class and post-industrial/post-colonial politics in contemporary Britain, Europe and beyond.
The first workshop, in this series of events, took place in May 2010 and explored issues to do with working class life and the politics of community and national belonging in contemporary Britain. Six invited scholars shared in common a commitment to social anthropology and ethnographic fieldwork and four CRESC scholars - sociologists or social historians of class - were discussants and initiated a conversation about what difference an anthropological perspective makes to the study of social class in Britain.
For this year’s event, twenty minutes papers will be given by six sociologists/social historians and social anthropologists will act as discussants, inviting debate from a small audience of no more than forty delegates. Speakers and discussants for the workshop are as follows:
Speakers: Bridget Byrne, Wendy Bottero, Andrew Miles, James Rhodes, Mike Savage and Elizabeth Silva
Discussants: Jeanette Edwards, Gillian Evans and Penny Harvey
