Download: Audio, Video
Speaker(s): Professor Beverley Skeggs
Recorded on 17 October 2013 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.
Many theories adopt the metaphors of capital to explore power (e.g. Bourdieu), others propose that capital has subsumed all areas of life. Beverley Skeggs will explore what the optic of the logic of capital reveals and obscures.
Beverley Skeggs is Head of the Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths, London. She is soon to be an ESRC Professorial Fellow working on A Sociology of Value and Values.
