Inequalities Seminar: Addressing recognition gaps: destigmatization processes and the making of inequality
Speaker: Professor Michèle Lamont (Harvard University)
Tues 7th March, TW2 9.05, 12.30-1.45pm
This talk will bring together three lines of research focused on destigmatization processes (as they pertain to African Americans, people with HIV-AIDs, and the obese); cultural processes feeding into inequality; and recognition gaps experienced by white working-class men in the United States and France, and stigmatized groups in Brazil, Israel, and the United States. From these studies, Michèle Lamont proposes an agenda for the empirical analysis of recognition, which she views as an essential but largely missing dimension to the study of inequality.
Michèle Lamont is Professor of Sociology and of African and African American Studies and Robert I. Goldman Professor of European Studies at Harvard University. She has been named winner of the 2017 Erasmus Prize, which recognizes individual or group contributions to European culture, society, or social science.
