Rethinking Respectability: returning to value and ideology?

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor Beverley Skeggs

Recorded on 29 February 2012 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

Professor Skeggs will revisit her 1997 study on "respectability" and its political parallels in the present day. In doing so, she will discuss the current vogue for reality television as social work, and our response to it as an audience. Beverley Skeggs is professor of sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.
