About the Event

This event will appeal to those conducting research on social class from across the social sciences, irrespective of theoretical perspective and/or methodological design. It aims to bring together those working on social class from different disciplinary traditions to discuss current research and emerging debates.

Agreed keynote speakers are Professor Mike Savage (London School of Economics) and Dr Louise Folkes (University of Gloucestershire).

Call for Papers

The presentation format will be a 10-20 minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes for any questions. Submissions from postgraduate research students are actively encouraged, in addition to early career researchers and other members of the academic community with research interests concerning social class.
