How might we argue for better representations of working-class lives in the British media? Join at us Sociology in Action – taking place on 13th December in London and Online – to find out! In an eye-opening talk, Professor Helen Wood will look at ways in which the working class have been represented in recent British media – from the tabloid language of ‘scroungers’, to television’s ‘poverty porn’ and to ordinary celebrity ‘trainwrecks’.
Helen will be joined by four other fascinating speakers on the day, covering a range of challenging questions pertaining to how society functions.
