Class Matters: A New Materialist Approach
Presenter: Peta Hinton
The material turn that has been gathering steam in the social and cultural sciences in recent years is distinguished by its signature approach to materiality as emergent, indeterminate, self-organising or sui generis: a dynamic participant in social meanings and processes that extends political analysis to more-than-human agencies.
Re-materialising Social Class
Presenter: Nick J. Fox
In this paper I outline a new materialist perspective on social class, and contrast this with existing approaches. Marx’s materialist analysis of social class explored two flows of matter: of human bodies and of economic capital.
