WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT BEING MORE EQUAL?

When: Mon 25 Jun 2012, 18.30 – 20.00

Where: Conference Centre, British Library

Price: £7.50 / £5 concessions

Book now for 25 Jun 2012, 18.30 – 20.00

 

Join Professor Danny Dorling of the University of Sheffield for the second Annual British Sociological Association/British Library Equality Lecture. 

Professor Dorling’s work highlights the impact of equality – and inequality – on our lives, using extraordinary mapping techniques which bring statistics on the way we live – and die – to life. His latest book No Nonsense Guide to Equality (published by New Internationalist) discusses the positive effects that equality can have, using examples from across the globe. It examines the lessons of history and covers race, gender and ethnicity, age, and wealth. Danny’s lecture will draw from the book and consider just how equal it is possible to be, look at why some people prefer inequality and outline the factors that will lead to greater equality for all. 

The event will be chaired by Professor Judith Burnett, Chair of the British Sociological Association and Dean of the School of Law, Social Sciences and Communications at the University of Wolverhampton.
