This one-day interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together academics working on the concept of class. The central premise is to look at the ways in which working-class spaces are written, represented and inhabited: by writers, historians, literary critics, sociologists, geographers and the British working-classes themselves. Broadly, it seeks to consider real, imagined and textual spaces, the way in which certain spaces are designated (or read) as working-class spaces, and how identity and subjectivity for the classed individual may be managed through a reading of ones space.
