LIEPP and OSC are glad to invite you to attend the workshop:
The Middle Classes, Housing and Schooling in the City
Comparative Perspectives from Europe, South America and Asia
Friday June 28th 2019
9h30 - 19h00
254 boulevard Saint Germain, 75007 Paris
The workshop explores the interactions between middle-class housing and schooling practices and experiences in major cities across Europe and South America, calling into question their spatial dimension.
It will bring together scholars using theoretical and empirical tools from urban research, sociology of education and sociology of social stratification to reflect on the way space, housing and education interact in the definition of the middle classes and inform their role in the evolution of cities:
How are housing and schooling strategies articulated and foster uneven trajectories within the middle classes?
What do these practices tell us about their relationships to other social groups and public institutions?
What variations can we detect between cities?
How do they relate to differences in terms of housing markets, school systems and middle-class characteristics?
