In this talk Wendy Bottero discusses her book, 'A sense of inequality'. The book brings together a range of different literatures in order to better understand what provokes a sense of inequality.
The book argues that we must locate people’s knowledge, beliefs and values about inequality within a more situated understanding of their practical engagements and concerns. One difficulty is that many analysts’ main interest in subjective inequality rests in how people’s understandings affect their consent or challenge to relations of inequality.
This question is an important one, but we must first analyse people’s understandings of inequality on their own terms, locating them within their ordinary practical concerns and contexts of activity, and emerging as part of their struggles to resolve their problems of experience.
The seminar will be held via Zoom (see link on this page).
