Degendering Carework with Professor Erik Olin Wright
The British Sociological Association, Work Employment and Society and City University London are proud to launch the Rosemary Crompton Memorial Lecture Series.
Professor Rosemary Crompton was a pioneering sociologist. Her insights into class and gender inequalities produced a large body of work which continue to have resonance today. After Rosemary's premature death in 2011 the Academic community sought to perpetuate her memory by holding an Annual Rosemary Crompton memorial lecture. The lecture series is to be organised around the key themes of her work: gender, class and employment.
The inaugural speaker is Professor Erik Olin Wright, University of Wisconsin-Madison, an international expert in class inequalities and a former colleague of Professor Crompton.
