Podcast: Classificatory Struggles; Class, Culture and Inequality in Neoliberal Times by Dr Imogen Tyler
Dr Imogen Tyler talks about “Classificatory Struggles: Class, Culture and Inequality in Neoliberal Times” for the Sociological Review Annual Lecture. This lecture was kindly shared via the Ragged University after getting permission from the journal and the speaker.
The content of the talk is to unpack the problems surround the portrayal of poverty and disembodiment of the term class from discourse. Starting with an analysis of popularly dubbed ‘poverty porn’ she then spends time rooting down into what language is used in reportage and what concepts are helpful to deconstruct the Neoliberal cultural shifts we are seeing today.
