About this day

For A-level students

Enjoy a cutting-edge day of Sociology, exploring social inequality, crime, education, identity and more…

After an exciting and successful programme in London last year, we will be bringing this fantastic enrichment day for enthusiastic A-level Sociology students to the University of Warwick Arts Centre this autumn.  The programme will address a range of increasingly challenging and powerful questions on how society is organised and the factors which influence our choices and how we experience life.  One more speaker and further information on the programme to be announced soon.

The effects of growing up and living in very unequal countries Danny Dorling, University of Oxford

This lecture will focus on the effects on individuals of growing up in countries where the incomes of children’s parents varies widely, and the comparisons with more equitable and affluent counties. Is there a solution or any evidence or change happening today?
