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 organised around the key themes of her work: gender, class and employment.

The Rosemary Crompton Memorial Lecture Series is a public event and is open to all. However, we do ask attendees to register online.
