Ongoing projects:

The subjective implications of social class: Evidence from 38 countries

Using ISSP data spanning twenty years I explore the connection between the “objective” class positions of individuals and their own subjective perceptions of these circumstances. The study includes a review of the international writings on class, subjectivities and predictive models. This material will be used to operationalize an approach to the data that draws primarily on a relational measure of class. Through regression analyses, I seek to determine the mechanisms which orient subjectivities alongside social structural processes, and in turn how these structural processes affect and impact on individual subjectivity.
