Since its beginning, sociology has made important contributions to our understanding of socio-economic inequality. In recent years, however, much of our focus has shifted away from issues related to social class and economic inequality. This panel of CSA Outstanding Contribution Award recipients challenges sociologists to produce new knowledge in this area. The panel will discuss their own work on social class, economic inequality (both in terms of wealth and incomes) and the consequences of inequality for society and politics.

Speakers:
  • Patrizia Albanese, President-elect, Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and Chair of the Ryerson University Research Ethics Board
  • Robert Anderson, Dean of Social Sciences, Western University
  • Simon Langlois, Professor emeritus, Department of Sociology, Université Laval
