LSE Commission on Gender, Inequality and Power: Session 4 – Media and Culture|

The Commission is designed to draw on LSE research and external experts to provide theoretical and empirical knowledge to inform public and policy debates in the UK concerned with understanding and addressing the complex and multidimensional character of inequality and power imbalances between women and men.
 
In this fourth session, the Commission will consider the ways in which gender debate is currently represented in UK media by drawing on existing research to consider the multiple mechanisms that constrain representations, reifying existing norms and curtailing full participation in public and cultural life.

  • Friday 24 April 2015
  • 9.30am to 5.30pm
  • Session Lead, Dr Sadie Wearing
  • This event is by invitation only

Previous sessions have focused on Economy, Politics and Law. In addition to these broad areas, four cross cutting themes of violence, work/life balance, rights, and power will be explored. More information about the Commission can be found here|.

Inequality in the 21st Century: A Day Long Engagement with Thomas Piketty|

Monday 11 May | 10am-5pm | Old Theatre, Old Building

The new International Inequalities Institute at the LSE is thrilled to be holding a day-long seminar with Thomas Piketty, whose Capital in the Twenty-First Century has been of global significance in shaping debates about inequality across the globe.

Four separate sessions will be held and Thomas Piketty will be present throughout:

10.15-11.30am: Economics, Political Economy and Democracy
11.45am-1.00pm: Gender and Everyday Life 
2-3.15pm: Accumulation and Timespaces of Class 
3.30-4.45pm: The Policy Implications

This event is free and open to all but will require a ticket. Bookings open on 20 April. For more information see LSE Sociology||.

***Please book your place at the Gender and Everyday Life| session***

There will be a session on 'Gender and Everyday Life' during the conference. Thomas Piketty’s  Capital in the Twenty-First Century highlights the magnitude of contemporary inequality, how it has come about, why it matters, and what might be done about it. Introducing a feminist perspective enhances his analysis by not only pointing to the gendered composition of contemporary inequality but by introducing an inter-disciplinary perspective capable of examining the multiple ways in which inequalities are naturalised, legitimated and experienced in everyday life. Speakers include: Professor Stephanie Seguino, Dr Lisa McKenzie and Professor Naila Kabeer (pictured).
