Dr. Sören Carlson: "Transnationalization, social class and the symbolic construction of “groupness”

Upcoming events (up to three)

No upcoming events found. This event has taken place in the past.


Ongoing globalization and transnationalization processes have profoundly affected many societies over the last decades. Within sociology, this has, inter alia, raised the question of to what extent we can observe the formation of transnational social classes as a result of these processes. This presentation outlines the ideas for a research project that aims to engage - empirically as well as theoretically - with this issue by conceptualizing transnational class formation as an instance of symbolic class-making, drawing thereby on theoretical ideas of Pierre Bourdieu, Michèle Lamont, Andreas Wimmer and others.
