Rethinking Class Analysis
The social stratification of a society can be most straightforwardly defined as its internal division into a hierarchy of distinct social groups, each having distinct life chances and a distinct style of life (John Scott 1996). Historically the concept of ‘class’ has been the most frequently used concept when describing stratification in modern societies. However, the question is if ‘class’ is still a relevant concept. Have modern advanced societies such as the Danish developed into a society where ‘class’ has little if any relevance for individual or social identity? The purpose of the seminar is to give participants insights into the different theoretical approaches to analyses of social stratification. Department of Political Science and Governance.
