This page concerns the long-running series of 'Social Stratification Research Seminars'. These have been held annually since the late 1960's, most often organised by Bob Blackburn. They usually take place in September in Cambridge, but occasionally are held at other venues [e.g. blog post from 2013 meeting].
Social Stratification Research Seminar 2018
venue and dates to be confirmed
Our 2018 meeting schedule is not yet confirmed, however we hope to arrange the seminar at the University of Cambridge, most probably over 5-7 September 2018 (tbc). The 2018 meeting will - we think! - be the 50th anniversary meeting for this seminar group, and we hope that the 2018 seminar will include a few elements that celebrate this achievement.

The Social Stratification Research Seminars have been running almost every autumn since 1968. For most of that time they have been organised in Cambridge by the Social Science Research Group (formerly the Sociological Research Group), an organisation within the Department of Sociology, University of Cambridge. Over recent years meetings have been held in Cambridge (2006, 2008-9, 2012-3, 2016), Cardiff (2003-5), Edinburgh (2014, 2017), Milan (2015), Stirling (2007, 2011) and Utrecht (2010).
