Organised by colleagues in SSPSSR; Tim Strangleman, David Nettleingham, Emma Pleasant & Sophie Rowland and Student Success Project Lecturer Triona Fitton, the Working Class Studies Association’s Annual Conference this September will be hosted in the UK for the first time at the University of Kent.

The conference will bring together academic, activists and artists in an event which offers an exciting programme exploring various themes around class, including its role in education, and its many intersections.

This year’s Working Class Studies Association Conference will explore the many research perspectives on class that will be showcased, and a number of student participants whose places have been funded by a Student Success Project grant, will be joining Dr Triona Fitton and Dr Barbara Adewumi for a staff-student panel discussion on class in higher education.
