Book Launch: Class in Australia

Readings Carlton — Woiworung Country, 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

Join us for the launch of Class in Australia by editors Steven Threadgold and Jessica Gerrad.

This collection acknowledges that in the two decades since it was claimed that class is dead, social, economic and cultural inequalities are rising. Though Australia is often described as a ‘lucky country’ with a strong economy, we are witness to intensifying inequality with entrenched poverty and the growth of precarious and insecure labour. At a time of deepening inequality, Class in Australia brings together a range of new and original research for a timely examination of class relations, labour exploitation, and the changing formations of work in contemporary Australian society.
