BSA New Materialisms study group Inaugural Day Conference

Monday 10 June 2019
12 noon to 5 p.m.
BSA London Meeting Room, Imperial Wharf, Fulham.

The establishment of the BSA new materialisms study group in 2018 reflects the growing interest among sociologists in this approach, both theoretically and as an ontological perspective to inform empirical research.  This one-day symposium is a showcase of members' research, and will also discuss the future development of the study group's work within the BSA.

Paper 2: Re-materialising Social Class.
