Chair: Professor Mike Savage

Recorded on 18 April 2018 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

This event will consider the prospects for contemporary thinking within the cultural studies tradition to engage with current inequalities.

Mindful of the historical importance of this tradition, dating back to the 1960s and including work by Richard Hoggart, Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, feminist cultural theory, and Bourdieu, the panel will both take stock of these older perspectives and offer their thoughts on contemporary prospects.
