Pierre Bourdieu, in Pour un mouvement social européen,
Le Monde Diplomatique, juin 1999 — Pages 1, 16 et 17, aussi in Contre-feux 2, Raisons d'agir, 2001, p. 13-23

"L'histoire sociale enseigne qu'il n'y a pas de politique sociale sans un mouvement social capable de l'imposer ( et que ce n'est pas le marché, comme on tente de le faire croire aujourd'hui, mais le mouvement social qui a « civilisé » l'économie de marché, tout en contribuant grandement à son efficacité ). En conséquence, la question, pour tous ceux qui veulent réellement opposer une Europe sociale à une Europe des banques et de la monnaie, flanquée d'une Europe policière et pénitentiaire ( déjà très avancée ) et d'une Europe militaire ( conséquence probable de l'intervention au Kosovo ), est de savoir comment mobiliser les forces capables de parvenir à cette fin et à quelles instances demander ce travail de mobilisation.

Measuring Social Class: Bourdieusian Approaches, University of Bath, 15 novembre 2013

Measuring Social Class: Bourdieusian Approaches

15 November 2013

Time: 12:00-17:00
Location: Chancellor's Building 3.5 , University of Bath
Speaker:  MikeSavage (London School of Economics) & WillAtkinson (University of Bristol)
BSA Bourdieu Study Group Event in Conjunction with the Centre for the  Analysis of Social Policy (CASP) University of Bath

About the seminar

Debates around ways of measuring social class have recently gained momentum through the work of Savage et al, popularized by the Great British Class Survey, a major study of social class patterns in contemporary Britain. This work draws on the many criticisms that have persisted over the last decade or more about the inadequacy of models of class analysis that rely fundamentally on an economic measurement of class position. These criticisms flag up the complexities of social class measurement and suggest that other factors such as social and cultural capital are important in trying to locate someone’s class position. These multiple factors of analysis have become increasingly important as patterns of work and consumption have changed with the loss of industry within the UK and other capitalist societies. This workshop aims to generate discussion about the best ways to try to define and measure social class in contemporary Britain. It will do so by drawing on Bourdieusian theory and engaging with papers by Professor Mike Savage and Dr. Will Atkinson, who each offer their own perspective on utilizing a multiple capitals approach to ascertaining class positioning. It will interrogate the problems and benefits of using these approaches and consider the best ways in which Bourdieusian theory can forward class analysis. The workshop is limited to 50 people and will involve keynote presentations as well as discussion groups.
The workshop will be followed by a wine reception open to all attendees.
