Inequality Round Table
The Inequality Round Table is an opportunity for researchers and postdocs to get to know each other and discuss work in progress in an informal setting. Researchers/postdocs in need of peer feedback are invited to submit something written (the draft of a theoretical background, a long abstract for a potential article, a mindmap of your prospectus…) at least 8 days before the following meeting. Each piece selected will be assigned a discussant and circulated among all participants before the meeting. Preparing a very short presentation is recommended, but not mandatory. For more information, expressions of interest, and submissions, please write to [email protected]
The Reading Sessions of the Inequality Working Group aim at discussing the most recent seminal books in the fields of social and economic inequality.
One book at a time will be discussed during each of the meetings, starting with a short summary of the selected book (by a different volunteer each time) and followed by key discussion points and an informal discussion of the reading.
Each meeting will last for one hour during lunch and will take place every 6 to 8 weeks.
[email protected] if you have any suggestions for the upcoming sessions, or if you want to volunteer to summarise any of the books.
