Social inequality and stratification
We investigate the nature and consequences of divisions within societies.
We research inequalities in social class, gender, sexuality and age, and the interactions between them.
What do these inequalities mean for social identities and relationships, and why do they continue, and even grow, when society as a whole is getting richer?
