Centre for Higher Education and Equity Research (CHEER)

Does Class Still Matter?

Conversations about Power, Privilege and Persistent Inequalities in Higher Education

This seminar event was held on Wednesday 15 November 2017 in recognition and celebration of CHEER's 10th anniversary. The date also marked the 20th anniversary of the publication of Pat Mahony and Christine Zmroczek’s edited collection of essays: Class Matters: “Working Class” Women’s Perspectives on Social Class.

Late and early career researchers came together for creative, regenerative and productive inter-generational conversations about social class, feminisms and identities in - and about - the academy.
