Coming up on Thursday 20 February, we have our fifth seminar of the series: “Is young the new poor? Class and generation under neoliberalism” to discuss the chapter written by Soundings co-editor Ben Little on the role of generational politics emerging as a response to the material effects of neoliberalism on the lives of young people.

Ben will present his manifesto chapter “A growing discontent: class and generation under neoliberalism”, with responses from Shiv Malik (co-author Jilted Generation) and Mevan Babakar (Head of Digital, Bite the Ballot). The seminar will be chaired by Doreen Massey (Emeritus Professor of Geography at the Open University and founding editor of Soundings).

Tickets for this seminar are available online and cost £5 / £3 (concessions) / free (Soundings subscribers). Previous chapters of the Kilburn Manifesto, as well as the Manifesto framing statement are all available for download for free from the Lawrence & Wishart website.

The success of our previous seminars have been due to the quality of the discussions – both from the panelists and the audience. We hope you will join us again to make the future ones similarly engaging.

Becky and the rest of the Soundings team
