Changing Dimensions of Social Inequality in Russia and Eastern Europe
A series of CEELBAS one-day seminars

Social Class and Social Inequality in Russia and Eastern Europe
May 30th 2008, Dahrendorf Room, St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford

The collapse of the socialist variant of modernity in Eastern Europe is 
one of a number of factors underpinning the wider demise of ‘class’ as a 
focus of political and academic attention. However, the concept of ‘class’ 
remains vital in understanding the nature of social inequality and 
patterns of social stratification, not least in those societies 
undergoing ‘transition’ from socialist to capitalist systems. The 
transformations taking place in post-Socialist societies have in some 
cases seen the emergence of extreme levels of income differentiation, and 
raise questions about processes of social mobility, the experience of 
class-based inequality, and the expression of class in the political 
realm. This one-day seminar, organised by the Centre for East European 
Language-Based Area Studies, brings together a range of speakers in order 
to address these and other questions relating to emerging patterns of 
class-based inequalities in post-Socialist Russia and Eastern Europe.

Topics to be addressed by the seminar include: 
•	Workers and the weakness of collective action
•	The experience of the post-Socialist working class
•	Subjective dimensions of social class and perceptions of social 
inequality
•	Prospects for and processes of social mobility
•	Class dimensions of social networks

Attendance at the seminar is free and open to all. However, please
