'Why Study the Rich?'

April 23, 2016 12.30-5.30pm, Free
An afternoon of talks and discussion
Refreshments served. Older children and young adults welcome.

‘Why study the Rich?’ is an event that brings together cross-disciplinary approaches to studying wealth in society. Come and listen to talks by activists, writers and artists whose scrutiny, investigation and differing perspectives attempt to challenge cultural narratives and societal structures that are intrinsically linked to the maintenance of power.

Open discussion with the audience is encouraged throughout the afternoon, as together we discuss how studies of ‘the rich’ might reveal a deeper understanding of the conditions of contemporary life and contribute to the debate about inequality in society.

Confirmed Speakers:

Roger Burrows, Professor of Cities at Newcastle University

Aditya Chakrabortty, senior economics commentator for the Guardian

Jeremy Gilbert, writer, researcher and activist & Professor of cultural and political theory at UEL

Katharina Hecht, Phd student at LSE, on Economic Inequality

Jo Littler, Reader in cultural industries at City University London

Laure Provost, Artist, screening film ‘How to make money religiously’

‘Why study the Rich?’ culminates a project called The Rich as a Minority Group by artists Ruth Beale and Amy Feneck in collaboration with GCSE Sociology students from Little Ilford School in Newham.
