Miles, Not 'taking part' Structures and narratives of cultural (dis-) engagement, based on analysis of interviews with an extensive group of 'non-users' of cultural institutions. This will report on how non use is bound up with biographical like histories- in particular experiences of work, migration and mobility, family dynamics, and housinf histories- and the marginalizing processes of urban regeneration
Selina Todd (Lecturer in History) Marginalisation and understandings of cultural participation in north Manchester looks at the post war construction of the working classes as 'problem populations'. This will consider how to better understand the historical formation of working class experience since 1945, and will include a case study of the MAD theatre company
Modesto Gayo-Cal (University of Diego Portales, Santiago de Chile) and Savage, Disputing the abstainer and univore thesis, using data from Cultural Capital and Social Exclusion to consider working class cultural engagement
Wendy Bottero (Senior Lecturer in Sociology) on 'Who do they think they were: family histories, social exclusion and understandings of the past' A small-scale qualitative exploration of popular family history, which investigates how- in the process of reasearching their family trees- amateur genealogists perceive historical processes, and situate themselves, and their ancestors, within narratives of social change and the 'past', and to consider what kinds of solidarities and identities are linked to such practices
Sophie Woodward (Lecturer in Sociology) on ordinary participation using ethnographic studies to show how everyday objects are agents of engagement and participation
