Class has been the central organising principle in the history of left politics, but it is frequently argued that a class-based society is now giving way to a more individualised, meritocratic culture. There clearly have been changes – which we will be discussing on the 28th – but class still remains a constitutive part of capitalism. How should we now think about class and politics?

Sessions on Class, history and culture; Class and globalisation; Nation and class,
The middle classes; A new politics of class.
