British Journal of Sociology 2013 Annual Public Lecture
Date: Thursday 17 October 2013
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Professor Beverley Skeggs
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.
