Inequalities and Social Justice Postgraduate Conference 2015

Social Injustice & Inequalities: 'Race, Gender & Class’ Conference

To be held on the 10th July 2015

The purpose of this one day interdisciplinary conference is to promote collaboration among scholars, all postgraduate students and practitioners. The conference will be held under the auspices of Warwick Sociology's Inequality and Social Justice Research Cluster, which brings together research on multiple dimensions of social inequailty and their intersections, and means of addressing these.

In line with the ethos of the cluster, the emphasis of this conference will be on, but not limited to, the social injustices and inequalities prevalent in contemporary capitalist society, at the intersection of ‘race’, class, and gender, and what this means in relation to social justice and its attainment. This conference is also a medium through which we hope to highlight the mechanisms through which ‘racial’, class and gender inequalities remain underestimated, and a routine component of people’s everyday lives – whether this is in relation to for instance work or social relationships.

Our goal is to develop a forum that will attract “organic intellectuals” within and outside academia for the study and ‘resolution’ of ‘racial’, ethnic, gender, and social class issues and inequalities.
